Writing a children’s book is not as easy as it looks.
That’s what a group of 15 students at Maple Ridge secondary found out after taking on the challenge for their Term Two creative writing class.
The students – all in Grade 12 except for three in Grade 11 – wrote, illustrated, produced and printed their own books for students between Kindergarten and Grade 3.
To start, teacher Sid Siddique brought in books from his own children’s past for inspiration. The budding writers then had come up with an idea for a plot with a positive message.
