Henry's BIG Adventure


I have written and illustrated a children’s book as well as planned a selection of lesson plans that can be used in addition to the book titled Henry’s BIG Adventure. Illustrated children’s books are very valuable to the development of children by aiding in comprehension. According to Mary Renck Jalongo, author of Young Children and Picture Books, children can learn so much from reading stories, even fiction ones. Henry’s BIG Adventure centers on a young boy who finds an old photo album with pictures of several places he has never been before. The album leads him on a big adventure to explore these places in his flying red wagon.

To make the book and lesson plans more accessible, I have created a website that contains links to a pdf version of the book, an eBook version of the book, and there are links to digital versions of my lesson plans. My reason for creating this book is to produce a book that I can use in my own classroom, while also showcasing the education I have gained through BGSU.
