Book Inspired Art Project with Cut + Paste Bookshelf
Bookmarks has partnered with Cut & Paste Bookshelf to bring a book-inspired craft every month. New projects are available the second Saturday of each month. Read the book, then make the art - or make the art first and be inspired to read a new book!
June's pick is Look Both Ways by Jason Reynolds, a novel told in ten blocks, showing all the different directions kids’ walks home can take.
When it is posted, the project can be seen HERE.
