“What Would You Do?”

“What Would You Do If It Happened to You?”

That is the question I wanted answered.

I also wanted to have fun with little, original poems.

what would you do2

 

  • I began by collecting images of funny animals from all over the Internet.
  • I saved the images to Picasa.
  • I wrote my little poems below each image where it says “caption”.
  • I cropped the images to a square. (Choose the CD Cover cropping option)
  • I pushed print.
  • Options appeared on the left.
  • I chose the “border width” option which I moved all the way to the right. 
  • I chose a font and a font size and printed each page on my printer on 8 1/2 x 11 photo paper.
  • I trimmed the paper to 8×8 so that I could use some clear sheet protectors which I already had.

This project was very satisfying. I had so much fun making up the poems and asking the questions. 

I put the pages back to back with a few pieces of double-sided tape and slid them into the protectors

Then, I made the covers using the images I had collected and adding text in Picasa.

 

what would you do

 

 

Every cover is different as are the books.

If the children share or trade, each book is unique.

I tested.

I sat down with little children and read the pages.

When I asked them “what would you do if it happened to you?”

Their answers were as wacky

as I had hoped they would be!

 

what would you do3

 

I put them together as you can see.

 

what would you do all three

 

” Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves,

and it is tiresome for children

to be always and forever explaining things to them.”
