Exploring Illustrators in Guided reading/Class readers Nov 2019
For their class reader this term, the children in Panther class have been reading the novel 'Magic Molly and the witch's Kitten'. As well as exploring this in our whole class guided reading sessions, the children have also explored the picture book, 'Oh Gorge, Where have you been?' looking at links between the texts.
While exploring this picture book, we did a little research into the Illustrator, 'Emma Haines'.
One of the tasks the children completed around this text involved children recording a book review of their favourite part, and a picture of their favourite character from the story.
Some of the children however, when hearing we were sending the reviews to the Illustrator, chose to record a message on the bottom of the reviews to Emma, telling her their thoughts about her illustrations.
We sent these reviews off and have received a lovely response, the illustrator said, "Thank you very much Panther class for taking the time to tell me your favourite parts in the story, I am glad you enjoyed reading it. I particularly enjoyed looking at the pictures in your reviews. I like the detail you have used in portraying the characters and your use of colour to illustrate this. Lidia, it looks like you have used a small amount of cross hatching to try to emphasise the texture of fur in George's coat, well done! Keep reading children and keep drawing, I think Panther class have some very talented artists!"
