Blending of TV and Children’s Books

What do you get when you blend together TV and children’s books?  ……..

A very funny book cover. I thought that these book covers were clever.  The artist took a science fiction story and blended it with a children’s book cover.  I was inspired by the website called College Humor by Caldwell

Tanner. I was thinking about using this lesson for my middle school


First have the students take a TV show that they like to watch (school appropriate) and take a children’s book cover and put the two together. 

Show examples of what a finished product looks like.

Have many examples of picture books or stories for students to look at.

Have students write about the correlation between the TV show and the picture book.

Have students plan out their idea for the image that they want to create.

Have students think of a title for the blended book.

Finally, have drawing materials for students to create their book cover.
