For my book, 'Mis Partes de Cuerpo,' I came up with the idea of writing about body parts and their uses. Originally, I was going to write a Native American folk story, but writing with limited Spanish vocabulary proved to be more difficult than I thought it would be. I chose to write about parts of the body as an alternative which I believe was and would be good for anyone that is learning the basics of the Spanish language. My book contained each body part (head, mouth, nose, eyes, ears, hair, arms, hands, legs,meet, fingers/toes) with brief descriptions of what I use them for, or what I like to do.
This purpose of this entire project of ours is to send books to Nicaragua for children in need of books. Each person is to create a book and illustration in complete Spanish to help the process of educating younger children.
