Help us pick cover illustrations!

by | Apr 3, 2008 | WriteShop Primary


Oh, the excitement is mounting! The talented Deborah Thomson keeps sending us sketches, each one cuter than the one before! Since WriteShop Primary teaches writing for kindergarten, first, and second grades, we especially love the cheerful, whimsical, inviting faces and poses.

Once we settle on our three sketches, Deborah will create a clean drawing of each grouping. Finally, she’ll add color and shading.

Please tell us what you think!

Will you add your two cents? Leave a comment to let us know your favorite grouping from A, from B, and from C. (Three votes altogether.)

  • Cover A1 or Cover A2?
  • Cover B1 or Cover B2?
  • Cover C1 or Cover C2?

In addition, feel free to make suggestions for postures, expressions, or placement. Or maybe you like an animal from A1 that would look better in C2. Please tell us what you think!

So no more waffling…it’s time for us to choose illustrations. Oh, and if it helps:

  • Book A has a red-striped border
  • Book B has a green-striped border
  • Book C has a yellow-striped border

A1. Tiger, flamingo, zebra


A2. Elephant, tiger, flamingo

 B1. Cheetah, giraffe, zebra

B2. Parrot, zebra, giraffe

C1. Hippo, monkey, ostrich


C2. Cheetah, monkey, ostrich
