Making Faces!: Star in Your Own Works of Art
This is a different kind of book, a face book! (I usually think if you put these words together, you get Facebook, but that’s not what I meant.) In Making Faces, the reader is supposed to poke his or her face through the hole in the pictures. “You’re the star of your own work of art!” Every page has a different scene. The reader is supposed to draw with pencils, pens, or crayons. You could even “shout orders like a captain, roar like a lion, or munch like a caterpillar!” Readers might use paint or collage to decorate the scenes on the different pages. You can even make prints on this book. I like that there are lots of themes. My favorite pages were “I’ve Gone Fishing,” “I Rule,” “Flower Power,” and “Roarrrr Like a Lion.” I also like “Goaall!!” because I cheered very loudly to my mommy on that page. This book is like a combination of drawing, reading, and drama because you can draw on the pages, read in your head and out loud, and even act a part when you put your face in the picture.
