For my repurposing project I am thinking of taking an argumentative essay and transforming it into a children’s book. My essay is arguing against implementing Cape Wind (an off shore wind turbine project) on Cape Cod. I think I could easily portray Cape Cod’s beauty to children, explain the purpose of the wind project in very simplistic terms and get my point across of why I don’t want the project to take place on Cape Cod.
I want to explain all of this in the from of a story with undertones of my argument. I am brainstorming some ideas so I could write a metaphorical story based on my argument. I just need to figure out which age group of children I am targeting.
To get my children’s book juices flowing I would like to hear a few things from you.
What is your favorite children’s book and why?
Who was your favorite character as a child (TV or from a story – just not from the story you listed above)?
