Teaching Kids To Use Illustrations

Illustrations are used by illustrators to evoke a feeling within the reader. When we read books, the we have different responses depending on how the illustrator drew the images.
Chapter 10:   Tone, In Pictures and in Words 
Katie Wood Ray reminds us in this chapter that it is not always what you say, but it's how you say it.
Long Night Moon by Cythnia Rylant is a book about 12 different types of moons throughout the year.  Lovely!   Her beautiful prose matches the tone of the illustrations.   A wistful meandering.

Pin It!

This is such a beautiful book. It reminds me of Owl Moon. I always feel like whispering books like this.

One year my children and I took a walk each night of the full moon and wrote about our experience. This book reminds me of those special times before they were teenagers! Now they have a different kind of . . . charm!
