Do you have a child who loves comics or graphic novels? I’m raising my hand. Or, do you have a child who’s first love is NOT writing? If so, then this writing idea and template, is for you. My 5 year-old loves to make books. He typically makes one a day. Though his writing skills aren’t a match for his faster moving thoughts, he loves to tell stories through pictures. So, we created these comic book templates for him to do lots of book making.
There are seven different design sheets that can be arranged in any order.
There is also a front cover and an about the author page.
Print them and put your book together.
Bind your book with staples or tape.
Now, you are ready to be an author and illustrator.
Show your child how to draw speech bubbles and thought bubbles. This is a great way to get your child to add text that doesn’t overwhelm the writer.
Making Books with Kids is a great list of book making ideas.
