In Partnership with Baxter’s Corner
Thanks to The Cabbage Patch’s partnership with Baxter’s Corner, Young Author’s Camp is a wonderful program that helps our children develop their storytelling skills! Last year, we saw the Young Authors “Going Bananas in Space” with their debut book. This year, many of our favorite characters have returned with the sequel, “The Catasterous Cruise,” that finds our heroes on a journey filled with mermaids, fairies, and a mystical land made of chocolate and candy! Will they return to The Patch in time to harvest their banana crop for intergalactic trade? You’ll have to read the book to find out!
Working with the Baxter’s Corner creative team, Chief Pencil and Chief Crayon, is a special opportunity for the children of The Cabbage Patch. Participants learn to collaborate as storytellers and allow teamwork to drive their creative vision. They begin with a rough draft that serves as the framework of the piece, and then work together in teams to refine elements like dialogue and illustrations. Having a professional author and illustrator as their mentors during the process is an incredibly valuable experience.
