'Journey' Picture Book

 

‘Journey' Picture book 

 

'Incredible', 'amazing' and 'exhilarating' are just a few words taken from our children when exploring Aaron Becker's imaginative world. As part of a recount (diary entry) writing topic, Year 4 have followed the adventure of a little girl and her magical, red crayon. The children make their own inferences about the little girls emotions as she seems to be trying to escape a lonesome, isolated and dull world.

 

"I was in awe of the little girl after she climbed through her bedroom wall and stepped into a tranquil, mystical world full of colour and fireflies! The little girl had to show true courage even though she was afraid of the black-hearted sky king." - Ben H 

 

"Amazingly, the little girl had a friend all along she just didn't see him. I believe the purple bird was sent as a protector and led her to happiness and friendship. The purple bird is my favourite character." - Pedro D

 

Year 4 have been able to explore many emotions from this book such as loneliness, isolation and compassion.
