Paint one side of the waxed paper to represent the sky. Then set it aside to dry.
On the black paper, draw silhouettes to create important people and objects from the book. Cut out the drawings.
Position the waxed paper paint-side up on the white paper and glue it in place. Then glue the black cutouts to the painted paper. Use the scrap to make a label for the drawing, including the book's title and author. On the back of the project, describe the project and tell about related events from the book.
Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
