Bell Top Elementary School hosted children’s book author and illustrator Daniel Jude Miller for a virtual presentation on June 3 as part of the school’s library program. Mr. Miller, who is known for creating the “Monsters in Manhattan” series, visited the school virtually and met with all of the Bell Top classes in four Google Meet sessions over the course of the day.
Mr. Miller told students what illustrators do and explained his process from sketch to a finished illustration. He also shared information about his professional career and the creative path he took from childhood to now.
“He was so dynamic and engaging and the kids loved it!” said Bell Top librarian Felice Devine.
Following the Google Meet sessions, students participated in their own drawing activity in library class.
