Lil'a and the Treasure Hunt
My kids give me the greatest joy in life, so I wanted to write a series of children's books with characters based off of my them. This past year I learned a lot about different ways to get books published. After I finished by research I decided to do self-publishing via Lulu. I now had a story line and a place to publish my book but no illustrations. Being a tech savvy person I decided to teach myself how to draw using my computer. I try to draw in several tools such as Google Draw and SMART Notebook tools to draw the different objects I wanted in my book.
Every object/picture in my book is made by layering shapes. I had to learn how to layer the shapes, lock the shapes, and add color or texture to each shape. Lil'a and the Treasure Hunt is my 1st attempt in writing and illustrating my 1st children's book. From going through this process in creating this book spawned some teacher resources that relates to the story.
