This Caldecott Honor book is a MF about a group of frogs that let the pictures tell the story. The pictures show them in the water, later on in the night it shows them flying outside in a neighborhood on their Lilly pads, inside a home watching tv, & chasing a dog. By the end of the story, they are back in the water leaving everyone confused about the lily pads they see all over town.
This book is another example of literature without words, that turns out to be an incredibly realistic fantasy book. I think students will be more involved when reading this book since they can explain what they think is occurring in the book and maybe what they think will happen next. Also the illustrations are comical and easy to understand.
This book explains a random Tuesday evening when toads/frogs are able to fly. No one really notices the occurrence of the flying frogs, but the frogs seem excited about their new ability. When the people wake up, they are confused as to why there are lily pads in the streets and no appearance of flying frogs.
Every Tuesday evening, an animal, starting with a frog, flies through town. This book represents a midnight adventure that leaves town wondering why there are so many lily pads throughout the streets. The things that happen through the night are times we will never fully understand. Award: Caldecott Medal; Published: 1991; Illustrator: David Wiesner
#31BookPics Day 9: This is Fats‘ (one of the GatheringBooks ladies) #SpinePoetry for Poetry Friday a few years back. Wiesner is a master of wordless visual narratives. He was one of the reasons why I fell deeply in love with children‘s books. Strange, surreal, and deliciously bizarre.
1. Almost always. It depends on what I‘m out doing!
2. Absolutely!!! My aunt is a librarian so I grew up in them. I always have a large stack of books and occasionally DVDs checked out, I‘m a member of the Friends of the Library, my son and I attend their kids programming...I‘d say 90% of books I read are library ones
3. I do when traveling!
1. At home watching Cheaper by the Dozen 2 with the family
2. Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris
3. Off my TBR shelf, and impulse reads if something is recommended here or on GR
1. Sitting in my office literally counting the minutes until I can drive home & snuggle Winston 🐶 (35 to be exact)
2. I'm going to start Small Country tonight
3. It all depends on my mood. Sometimes I want to read War and Peace, sometimes I'd rather dive into Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants
2. I‘m usually in my car, but also sometimes when I‘m cleaning the house and such.
3. Pretty much anything that requires any thought or attention whatsoever!
4. Narrator‘s fake accents. Sometimes.
1. Its a recent development but yes
2. I listen while driving 90% of the time. Sometimes while doing housework.
3. Anything that involves reading, even just surfing the web.
4. They take too long to get through. I don‘t like a book to take a week or more to get through.
5. 1.75-2x speed depending on the book. Regular is sooo slow! @Ke633 #tellmetuesday
1. In my living room relaxing after a teeth cleaning.
2. A Spark of Light by Jodi Picoult (ARC)
3. I always mean to read something off my shelf, but most of the time a great sounding ARC pops up.
1. At the Hilton Head Island airport waiting to catch my flight back home to NY via Charlotte. Vacation is over 😞
2. The Night Caller by David Field
3. Usually whatever catches my eye or whatever is due back at the library.
Have a great day everyone!!!!! I would love to hear what your plans are for today and what book you are reading today!!! I am currently reading The Poisonwood Bible and loving it so far and am hanging out at the beach with my family! ❤️
1) A small English manor
3) A book carved into an initial and a page folded book that says Read
4) Read first, sometimes to my own detriment
5) Vacuuming, how I loathe thee
Thank you for the tag, @hes7 😁
1. Book: Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society, Series: The Hunger Games
2. Popcorn - pre-Slimming World I would have put so much more 😂
3. The Office US, Parks and Rec, Power, Bob‘s Burgers, Gilmore Girls
This is the first book that came to mind for #magiccarpetride I love #davidwiesner 's books. Many of them are wordless allowing you to create the story. His art work is stunning. #picturebooks #rockinmay @Cinfhen
