The Prince and the Pauper

In English we read Mark Twain's The Prince and the Pauper, and each of us did a different project on it to present to another class. Mine was a picture book destined for Valerie's class. After some hard work condensing the story, telling it in an age-appropriate way, and drawing pictures, I finally got to present it! I loved sitting in their classroom, with so many eager eyes watching me intently. I think that it was a good experience for me to write and illustrate for pre-school comprehension-something that wasn't easy for me-and then see first-hand everyone's enjoyment. I hope that in future I'll get to do more projects like this!
