Doodle Lit by Jennifer Adams and Alison Oliver
Doodle Lit is filled with classic authors such as Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, William Shakespeare, etc. etc. There is a bit of a synopsis of each author and what they are famous for. There are also quotes from their famous works...with a bit of a Doodle Lit twist!
The fun part though are the activities in the book. A couple that I did were:
At first I thought Doodle Lit was geared more towards adults, but then I came across a page that said to get your parent to help you cut out something. So then I modified my idea and came to the conclusion that Doodle Lit can be for any age. I think an adult would know more of the authors than a young person though. The target age says for children 8 and up.
The pages are perforated so that you can tear them out, and each page that requires some form of cutting has a back page that is just a design so that you don't have to worry about ruining another doodle.
You can use colored pencils, crayons, markers, glue and glitter or anything else to help you embellish some of the activities.
If you like to doodle, and if you are a fan of classic literature then check this book out and have fun being creative!
