A Little Reading Task:
The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more you learn, the more places you’ll go.”— Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”
This week, I would like you to recreate the cover of a favourite book. You can do this using whatever media you wish e.g. on the computer or using pen and pencil. Please email a photo of your completed book cover to the office and then, I can upload on to this page.
I'm looking forward to seeing your designs!
