CLiF would like to introduce or re-introduce you to Sarah Dillard of Fayston, VT. Sarah writes and illustrates picture books, graphic novels for new readers and early chapter books.

See Sarah’s presentation here.

Things to think about:

  • Many of Sarah’s books celebrate the seasons and natural world. What other themes ties her books together? Where do you think she finds her inspiration?
  • Sarah writes and illustrates her own books and illustrates other people’s. Which do you think is harder?
  • She has two book series: Mouse Scouts and Extraordinary Warren. Why write and illustrate a series?

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

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

For younger kids:

For older kids:

  • Book Trailer Posters – use the poster to entice someone else to learn about an activity you like, such as scouting
  • Facebook Profile – make a profile for one of your favorite characters

For families:

  • Exquisite Corpse – combine writing and drawing into a fun storytelling game
  • Get Out! – go for a walk and observe the seasons

  1. Hello,
    I am interested in Sarah Dillard’s Zoom presentation video. I am President of Piedmont Center for the Arts in California and am interested in your work on literacy. I applied but did not see how to access her Zoom presentation. Is this possible?
