Jeannie Brett

On Monday, October 20, 2015 author/illustrator Jeannie Brett visited Conant School, presenting to grades K, 1, 2, and 3.  With each group, Jeannie told them about the many steps involved in illustrating a book, showing examples from each step of the process.  She talked about trying again when things are hard to do and the many times she had to practice and try again!  She finished with drawing a large illustration for each group with input from the students. 

These are some comments about the visit from our first grade students:

“Jeannie showed us her “tools” to write a story.”

“Jeannie taught us about thumbnail sketches.  They are practice drawings.”

“Jeannie tries to do hard things!  She drew a bear and we gave her ideas to add more to her drawing.”

“When a book is all the way done, Jeannie and her editor celebrate with a book birthday!”

“Jeannie Brett was AWESOME!”
