This is just a short clip from the actual video. Click here to learn how you can view the entire video.
Meet noted author and illustrator Aliki at her home in England as she talks about her books and drawing techniques plus does an illustration for the camera.
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.
