Penny the Penguin
For my Dissertation I chose the question ‘How can Picture Books Positively Assist in the Education of Children Between the Ages of 3-6 Years Old?’ which led me to research, write and design an educational picture book; every colour, image and text decision was thought through thoroughly. The book follows the main character ‘Penny’ as she visits the farm and meets all of the lovely farm animals, encouraging children to join in with identifying said animals, the colours and uses counting to further the children’s education.

Below is the front cover of the 'Penny the Penguin Goes to the Farm' picture book. It gives an insight into what the book is about, where it is set and who the characters might be.
Incorporating colour within the visuals allows for the children to follow along with the story better. Children are more stereotypically visual learners so having the clear link is crucial in their development.
As a final 'hoorah!', all of the characters that are seen within the book are shown on the back cover to both give an insight (before the book is read) and as a 'goodbye' (after it is read).
