Picture book study

Wednesday, 30 October 2013

We've been investigating elements of sophisticated picture books by looking at the work of Shaun Tan. His books explore a range of human emotions and moods through his atmospheric images. Below is a presentation showing some of the images from his book called "The Red Tree".  We matched feeling words to each image and then discussed how the image is a visual metaphor for that feeling. The students then made up their own metaphors for a range of emotions. At the moment, we are looking at another Shaun Tan book called 'The Lost Thing".
