“His mind filled with thoughts of all amazing things that were keeping his friend from imagining him“
I would use this book in my class because the images are engaging and children would love the humor in it.
I would use this in my future classroom because the idea is beyond what children normally think of, but something that they can relate to as they may have had an imaginary friend. Also, the images are stunning and would definitely keep them engaged.
Review: The Adventures of Beekle by Dan Santat, 2014, is a Caldecott Award winner about an imaginary friend and his journey to find a child of his own.
Blurb: This story along with beautiful illustrations tells a very touching story about friendship, imagination, and the courage to find one's place in the world.
Quote: “But his turn never came.“
The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend is a great F book by Dan Santat. This story shares how on a far away island an unimagined friend waits to be imagined by his one true friend. This would be a great IR book to let children‘s imagination run wild. #ucflae3414f19
This book is a Caldecott Award winner (published 2014). The book contained a message that was well thought out. I enjoyed the illustrations and the way in which the book was written very much.
Something that I really appreciated throughout the book, aside from the message and writing style, were the illustrations. I loved the color usage and the simplicity, but also complexity of some pictures.
“And together they did the unimaginable.“
This book is so cute and had a lot of room to express emotion and evoke true feelings in a story, reminiscing about having imaginary friends. Very “out-of-the-box“ idea! I would use this book for a younger age group to show that it's normal to have imaginary friends.
Caldecott Medal Book. This books shows every kids imagination. All the made up creatures and colorful pictures that they believe in. The illustrations were unique because they showed the real world as being dull and grey, and the imagination as colorful.
