Author/Illustrator: John Hare
Publisher: Margaret Ferguson Books, Holiday House, 2019
Themes: school field trips, moon, stories without words
Summary: (from my library catalog) in this wordless picture book, a girl is accidentally left behind on a class trip to the moon.
I like this book because: the landscape Hare created is deceptive – it looks simple, but we are drawn back to each page, practically before turning, to look for what our quick brains have missed, and there is so much to be discovered! Enjoy!
Resources/activities: how would you invite someone to join you in an activity whose language you could not understand? Try it, as a game. think of an activity and try acting it out without words to see if your partner gets it – like charades, but no clues!
