As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I’ve been reading posts of children’s (and adults to be fair) books on adventure and exploration. it’s led me to have a whole knew outlook on life, which I’ll be sure to touch on soon. While browsing the wonders of Amazon I came across this book. Admittedly I’d seen it before, but I finally took the plunge.
This book is absolutely stunning! As a primary school teacher I couldn’t resist sifting through and coming up with a scheme of work based on the whole book and concept. I say concept, as it’s billed as a collection of illustrations and writing found by the editor, Teddy Keen. Giving the book an additional sense of mystery too. Here’s a picture of my notes and ideas, I haven’t planned anything properly yet as we follow Literacy Tree planning at the school I work in, so I’m not 100% I’ll be able to fit it in, but I’d really love too!
