Students will learn the job of the author and the illustrator in this colorful activity packet. The packet includes a full color version of a short lap book and a black and white version of the same book. The lap book talks about the roles of both author and the illustrator. There is also a card to fold and put on a popsicle stick so author is on one side and illustrator is on the other. Give the students one and they have to show you that side of the stick. The packet also includes an opportunity for students to become the author and illustrator of a book.
