For my final project I decided to write and illustrate a children's book encompassing the aspects of this class that have really stuck with me. I wanted to find a way to approach the topic of change, most notably big life changes and individual changes, in a way that children could relate to. I chose scenarios such as new siblings, moving, starting school, parents divorcing, new friends, pets etc. and highlighted more subtle personality changes like new favorite foods, new dress up habits, and increased skills like reading. Coupled with this I really wanted to emphasize the fact that change is a part of life that we need to get used to, and that it doesn't have to be scary.
