Altered Books with some Kids who are 8,9, 10 and 11

This is my first experience working in this medium with kids of this age group. I recently finished another homeschool class made up primarily of teenage girls. Totally different. We looked at Rookie yearbook, cut pages from Vogue, listened to The Smiths on the Ipod and chilled.

The younger set is great because they are so free. Every one of them. But they move quickly.

Can you guess which of these books were created by A a bubbly and smart girl B my dear son (who is a bit of a cut-up) and C a child who works with such precision he would make a grand scientist?

Kirsty Mitchell's mother was dying, and she created this elaborate world using nearby locations and handcrafted costumes.
