The semester-long class examines all aspects of human growth and the factors that influence the development of children.

Students were given guidelines and helpful hints on how to make a children’s book, and then had five days in class to create a book for a 4-year-old.

The books were to be six to eight pages long, but some students found they needed more pages to tell the story they wanted, said teacher Connie Lund. Several students chose to do their own artwork while others traced images.

Lund has used the book assignment in the past, but this year decided to involve the day care so that her students could see how young children react to their works.

“The high school students loved the fact that they were able to read their books to the younger students and see the expressions on their faces,” Lund said. “The younger students also asked great questions of the high schoolers about their books.

It was very rewarding for the high school students.”
