“Robin” is a children’s book that I wrote and illustrated as a project for my Children’s Literature course at Hunter College during the Fall 2013 Semester. The main theme of this book is growing as an individual, by overcoming obstacles that come your way.
In terms of self-critique, I would probably change father bird living in a cage. My goal was to ensure children and young adults connected with Robin by the fact that parents are not always going to be able to help. They will have to make important, positive decisions for themselves sometimes. If I make a second story, following the events of this first one, I will probably have father bird change his way of living.
