      Hi Fatima,

      I’m so glad you accepted my invitation to explore my modest blog. and here are some answers to your questions:

      01. For the minibooks, you can find in the template section two ready templates for minibooks, you can use to fill in. The drawings are mostly from different sites that offers black and white pictures for coloring.

      01.1 So google the following phrase: Coloring pages.
      01.2 Or you can google the name of the particular picture you want but choose line drawing from the image obtions – usually on your left hand.

      02. You are right, Anansi was drawn completely in MS Word out of shapes.. Mostly circles and curve lines.

      Me myself was touched by Gabi’s work from ESLpritables. She was my inspiration..^^

      I’m honoured that you spent your points to catch up with my previous release of the Aesop’s fables. From now on, every contribution of mine you find there you can get them for free here..
