Why do this project?
Children like to tell people who don’t know about the important places in their life and what happens there. Making a picture book about a place gives them an early notion of including and focusing on a setting for their stories and memoirs. This project can actually be done a number of times throughout the year with a different focus each time. For example: an information text explaining all the different things that can be seen at a certain place, a memoir text about a favourite place and what they did there, and finally, a story with a strong setting where something happens!
