This week we have continued our discussions around what makes picture book illustrations engaging, unique and deserving of a medal!
The books we’ve been reading this week are You Matter written and illustrated by Christian Robinson:
Lift written by Minh Le and illustrated by Dan Santat:
and Hike illustrated by Pete Oswald:
These are all books where the pictures tell the bulk of the story, and all of the story in Hike since there are no words at all!
In some classes we looked critically at the illustrations and rated them for how wide their appeal is and how talented we think the artist is and in some classes we picked our favourite so far and drew a picture inspired by the art.
I can’t wait to continue our exploration of more awesome books from 2020 next week!
