DERT: CHILDREN'S STORY BOOK

About DERT:

 

DERT has been publishing specially designed learning tools in order to encourage families in reading and learning. This assignment will give us an opportunity to create classic short story books. 

The goal is to engage both young and old readers in reading literature. Students have to choose one of the classics and re-design a short story book that is accessible for any age group.  

DEVIN AND GOLIATH

RE-WRITTEN BY HARRIE PARK

David is a girl so I will change the name to “Devin”; Devin is a young girl; she attempts to defeat Goliath while others (her brothers, her dad, Saul and rest of the people) are not believing in her. 

The entire story will be about breaking “glass ceiling”, which means “an unofficially acknowledged barrier to advancement in a profession, especially affecting women and members of minorities”, although in reality, it cannot be broken.

Turns out that Goliath is part of a magic-mirror type of wall, and at the end, the wall breaks and shows a different scene hidden behind “Goliath”. The entire book will be black background+white silhouettes; as soon as the glass breaks, the background turns into white+silhouettes will become black.

The cover: there is a broken hole on the magic-mirror wall and night-sky with stars are shown beyond it.
