October 2019 Book Lover's Challenge - UPDATED WITH WINNER

Post by rachel0017 » Sun Sep 29, 2019 9:37 pm

The winner this month, as chosen by random.org, is #10: wimom!! Thank you to everyone who played along this month!

As far as I’m concerned, when October 1st hits, it’s Halloween. It’s my favorite holiday, though I’m more for cute Halloween, than scary Halloween. As a result, I’m always on the lookout for fun Halloween books, and one I’ve recently discovered, that I’m totally in love with, is Bonaparte Falls Apart by Margery Cuyler. It’s a picture book and, in it, poor Bonaparte (the skeleton) just can’t seem to make it through the day without completely falling apart. His friends come up with clever solutions to try to hold him together, but it’s not until they enlist the help of an unlikely companion, that a solution is truly discovered. I’ve read this book to several of my classes, and it never gets old!

Image


OPTION 1: Keep it Together
In the book, Bonaparte’s friends try their best to keep him together, so for Option 1, make a page about a time your friends helped you “keep it together” or vice versa. Making a point to spend time with friends is important, so document it! Did you go on vacation together? See a play with a buddy? Attend a reunion with an old friend? Anything goes for this option, as long as it’s a celebration of FRIENDS.

OPTION 2: Black and White and One Other Color All Over
I love the illustrations in this book, particularly the illustrator’s use of color. Each drawing of Bonaparte shows him with a red baseball cap, so it breaks up the typical stark black and white usually associated with skeletons. For this option, we’re going to expand that idea to a full scrapbook page. You can do this in one of two ways: either use a black and white background with one other predominant color as your accent, or use a solid colored background with black and white as your accents. Below, I’ve got examples of each.

I love Halloween too, and Halloween books. My kids had so many Halloween books, now I get to buy them for my grandchildren. This looks like a great one.

Your sample pages are awesome!
