Description

Shifting perspectives, from close-ups to landscape views, and a layout incorporating broad spreads and boxed sequences, add drama and motion to the storytelling and echo the photographic theme. David Wiesner is internationally renowned for his visual storytelling and has won the Caldecott Medal three times--for Tuesday , The Three Pigs , and Flotsam --the second person in history to do so. As an optional additional study, this could also link to a study of the history of cameras and report writing about this and could include a historical link about the way cameras have changed the way history is recorded. Flotsam is a great example of a wordless picture book that creates engagement through its detailed sequence of images, rather than its text and, as such, requires a high level of inference.

Spelling Seeds have been designed to complement Writing Roots by providing weekly, contextualised sequences of sessions for the teaching of spelling that include open-ended investigations and opportunities to practise and apply within meaningful and purposeful contexts, linked (where relevant) to other areas of the curriculum and a suggestion of how to extend the investigation into home learning. These branches are designed to support home learners to access literature-based learning using a selection of books we love from Writing Roots.His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards in the United States and abroad. It is carried across the ocean by a variety of fish, sea life, the artic, and even a city of mermaids until it again washes ashore and another child finds it. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Three of the picture books he both wrote and illustrated became instant classics when they won the prestigious Caldecott Medal: Tuesday in 1992, The Three Pigs in 2002, and Flotsam in 2007, making him only the second person in the award's long history to have won three times.

One thing I found hard to explain was developing photographs in today's world but we loved the book anyway. But there’s no way he could have prepared for one particular discovery: a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share . He creates three-dimensional models of objects he can't observe in real life, such as flying pigs and lizards standing upright, to add authenticity to his drawings. At heart it is a humorous fantasy story that also looks closely at the cyclical nature of life, as well as the ultimate power of nature. Children and parents will like this book because it is a good book and it is interesting - by Cameron age 9.

Horn Book Magazine says, "The meticulous and rich detail of Wiesner's watercolors makes the fantasy involving and convincing. The author and illustrator, David Wiesner, is famous for creating other wordless texts, such as Tuesday and Free Fall.According to the Kirkus Reviews, “From arguably the most inventive and cerebral visual storyteller in children's literature comes a wordless invitation . This book had such an impact on my 6 year old - when we first ‘read’ it together he actually cried at the ending. The final photo consists of a girl, who is holding a photo of a boy, who is holding a photo of a boy, who is holding a photo of a girl, and so on. David Wiesner is one of the best-loved and most highly acclaimed picture book creators in the world.
