This was my last biology projects of the school year. My teacher wanted us to work on something after all our finals were over, so we did children's books. Almost everyone in my class did the lazy computer-paper-and-internet-images type, but I went a little overboard and spent a little too much time on it. (And pwned them all! Grin) I got the idea to use a board book from my mom, who has been making all sorts of reconstructed books lately.

So I took an old board book we probably got at goodwill (my mom has a boxful) and sacrificed one of my good friends, National Geographic, and voila! My book is about the earth's biomes (habitats) so I used lots of cool landscapes and animals, though the little buggers took forever to find and cut out!

First pages









(not sure why this picture looks smaller...)
















The last page, a crescent earth as viewed from the earth (EDIT: moon). Pretty neat, I think.

Comments appreciated!! And I apologize for the multitude of large pictures, but I just love National Geographic and I wanted you to be able to see all the pretty pictures! Sorry!

It looks really neat Smiley I love how you put ice bears and penguins in the same picture too Wink (Background story: I had no idea until a couple of years ago that they live on opposite poles. Which makes a lot of sense; otherwise there would be no penguins. I felt rather stupid when I found out!) Anyways, it looks like a really good and colourful childrens book; jobb well done!

I am completely inspired now! (I was inspired to do embroidery and gardening earlier, but now I want to make books!) Was this a high school or a college project? I wish my teachers had assigned projects like this.

I'm living/working in Yosemite Nat'l Park til further notice! Blogging about it here. No swapping for me, and minimal crafting time, for the coming months. Almost done with library school! That sums things up for now.
