CLiF would like to introduce or re-introduce you to Gina Perry of North Hampton, NH. Gina writes and illustrates her own books, and illustrates for other authors.

Watch a clip of Gina’s presentation from CLiF’s Virtual Author’s Series.

Things to think about:

  • See a sample of her book illustrations – how would you describe her style?
  • How do you get started creating a character?
  • What is the editing process like for an illustrator?
  • How does your process differ if you are the author/illustrator or illustrating another author’s story?

Here are a few ways to get to know Gina’s work better:

CLiF has created literacy activities for students of all ages here. Here are some that would go nicely with Gina’s work:

For younger kids:

  • Story Yoga – tell a story about animals and monsters using known or imagined yoga poses
  • Fairy Tale Fridge Magnets – draw your own characters and tell stories using your images

For older kids:

For families:

  • Family book club – compare books you have read that include imagined beasts and magical animals
  • Wonder Wall – make a space to jot down notes, images, and observations that make you pause. How could they be put into a story?
