The Future of Children’s Books

Tags


Students were asked to create entries for the Wired Found Photoshop Contest. In February 2010, Wired Magazine asked readers to predict the future of children’s books. Below, are the student creations responding to this theme. Their learning objectives included design, photography, animation and concept realization. All imagery is original, no stock images here. At the bottom of this post you can see their concepts come to life in animation.

    I’m afraid these entries are lacking in both artifice and pretense.

    I believe the children are our are future
    Teach them well and let them lead the way
    Show them all the beauty they possess inside
    Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
    Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be
    Everybody searching for a hero
    People need someone to look up to
    I never found anyone to fulfill my needs
    A lonely place to be
    So I learned to depend on me

    Chorus:
    I decided long ago, never to walk in anyone’s shadows
    If I fail, if I succeed
    At least I live as I believe
    No matter what they take from me
    They can’t take away my dignity
    Because the greatest love of all
    Is happening to me
    I found the greatest love of all
    Inside of me
    The greatest love of all
    Is easy to achieve
    Learning to love yourself
    It is the greatest love of all

    I believe the children are our future
    Teach them well and let them lead the way
    Show them all the beauty they possess inside
    Give them a sense of pride to make it easier
    Let the children’s laughter remind us how we used to be

    Chorus

    And if by chance, that special place
    That you’ve been dreaming of
    Leads you to a lonely place
    Find your strength in love
