Read full description of the books Off We Go!:Personal Reaction:
I liked this book because of the rhyming and the illustrations it had. The pages were very open with minimal text and detailed illustrations which are good for beginning-to-read books. I thought the color schemes used were very appropriate because it was based in the wild and there was a lot of blues and greens. I really liked how the illustrations brought the text to life because they really connected and the illustrator did a fantastic job making the illustrations lifelike and look like they were moving a doing the actions that the text read, for example, the snakes were slithering around on branches and the text read "Slither-slee, Slithery slee." It was a very simple book which is ideal for beginner readers.
Purposes/Use in the Classroom
Read aloud to make a curricular connection
-This book could be used in a classroom to teach about different kinds of animals and what movements they make and the environment in which they live.
-It can also be used to talk about making friends of all different shapes and sizes because at the end of the book all of the animals come together and are hopping, slithering, digging, and running around each other as they all go to their grandmother's house!
-This book would be read in about kindergarten because it is a beginner book
-Students can read this book to learn about different animals and what they do to move and get around. They can compare the animal's movements with their own movements, like walking.
-This book could be used to teach students about the importance of illustrations in picture books. For this book, the illustrator used diagonal lines to demonstrate action and movement of all the animals going to their grandmother's house. They could use this book to compare to other books that use horizontal lines to demonstrate repose and peace, and other books that use vertical lines to demonstrate stability.
Other as Appropriate: onomatopoeia
-This book could also teach students about what an onomatopoeia is. It describes the snakes slithering, the frogs hopping (hop! hop!), and mice tip-toeing.
-A lesson could be created after this book and students could try to come up with other onomatopoeias
