Where the Mountain Meets the Moon

When I was an elementary school art teacher, I did a printmaking/bookmaking unit based on the book Where the Mountain Meets the Moon by Grace Lin, a beloved upper-grade fantasy novel set in ancient China (with 2 other books in the series!). One third grade class had read this book in class, and they each chose a scene or a set of visual images that represented the story for them and created block prints. They printed multiple copies and then we bound them into a book. I wish I had pictures to share! They were amazing.

The students were very excited because they were very connected to the book and the story. I would recommend this for a class readaloud for the upper grades, and there are infinite extension projects you could do to complement the reading experience!
