Author/Illustrator Selina Alko will create a Venn Diagram showing what she & her co-illustrator, Sean Qualls, have in common and also the things that make them unique (their differences). She will lead a brief discussion about identity and challenge kids to think about themselves in relationship to their friend, neighbors, family members, classmates, etc. Next, she will recreate the book cover art using simple collage, showing how the two main characters (just like Selina & Sean) are unique but also share some qualities too. Kids will then make their own Venn Diagram Portraits using mixed media.
