- 20 minutes
Questions for classroom discussion and assignments:
- What does Aliki say is the reason she uses only one name on her books?
- What name would you use professionally if you were to become an author. Why?
- What does Aliki mean when she says that “I am only 7 years old when I write a book.” Write a short story from the perspective of someone much younger than you are — or much older.
- Who does Aliki say first encouraged her to be an illustrator? Write an essay on who encourages you — and how. If you prefer, write an essay on someone that you have been able to encourage.
