Journey is a Caldecott honor F wordless picture book by Aaron Becker. This book follows a young girl and her “journey” through a fantasy land. I believe this book would be great for a RT and for my students to create a script because there are no words in this book. Students can take turns being the narrators and the little girl main character.

Mwinship This website includes teaching ideas and resources that go along with this book including a book trailer:https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/journey
The EL strategy 2 and UDL guideline 7.1 about cooperation and individual choice align with this book and RT lesson I would like to do along with it. #UCFLAE3414F19

ChrisC The cover itself has me interested but I do like how it sounds. Can‘t wait to try it. 2mo
DrSpalding Wordless picture books are perfect for having children write their own stories based on the images. Nice resource attached. 2mo

Journey by Aaron Becker is a F book that has won a Caldecott. It shows the journey of Josephine creating a magic world with just a red marker. What‘s interesting about this hook is that it does not contain words but just beautiful images our her journey. I think this would be great for a LC because students could share the imagination with one another on what they think is happening in the story. #ucflae3414f19

cassandram A site that could be useful is https://www.storybreathing.com/journey/. It shares a video version of the book and the creation of the book from the author. It then could provide students with examples on how with just images the author creates a beautiful story. 2mo
cassandram I would apply UDL 1.1 by offering ways the students could customize what is happening in the wordless story. This would be great with ESOL strategy 10 by paring and sharing with other students what they think is happening in the story. 2mo
DrSpalding This story and that video scream creativity and imagination. What a wonderful mentor text for a writing activity. Nice job going straight to the authors website. 1mo

"Journey" (F) by Aaron Becker is a wordless picture book that follows a young girl who draws her way into a fantasy world with her red crayon. The girl explores the kingdom, finds a beautiful pink bird and fights to free it from enemies. Without words, this is a great choice for Storytelling. Teachers get to ask students what they think is happening, teaching them to use visual context clues. #lae3414sp19

dayuso1 One UDL strategy that may be helpful is Offer Alternatives for Visual Info (1.3). Teachers can project pages onto screen using a projector in order to enlarge illustrations for the visually impaired. ELLs can further grasp this wordless story concept by drawing pictures of their own journeys. This meets the strategy "Encourage the Use of Drawings to Understand Concepts" (ESOL 30) 9mo
dayuso1 The resource linked below has several extension activity suggestions to spark student imaginations. This includes asking students to tell the story from the boy's perspective, or to create captions for the pages. https://www.teachingideas.co.uk/library/books/quest 9mo

Edenmonet This sounds like such a great book especially because of it having no words! Adding this to my book list! 9mo
Carinna.Chin Oh my goodness!!! This book looks amazing. I love that it has no words because an ELL could flip through without the stress of reading. 9mo

Journey, writ and illus by Aaron Becker, is a Caldecott award winning MF story that is completely told through pictures. This wordless book would be perfect for IR- allowing students to make up their own story as they follow along. The story is about a little girl who uses her magic crayon to take her on vast journeys to faraway places. UDL1.3-alternatives for visual info. EL#17-provide support through visuals. #UCFLAE3414F17

This modern fantasy Caldecott award wining book is the first in a trilogy of stories by Aaron Becker. This book would be a great for an AS.

Checked this out of the Elkin library. I've probably picked it up in Barnes & Noble a dozen times. It was great to finally get all the way through. There are no words, just a cool fantasy story told with pictures and it's the first book in a trilogy! My son liked it too!

LibrarianRyan Love this entire series. I wish he would do more. !!! 3y
GatheringBooks loved the other two books in the series too! 3y

Absolutely gorgeous. Reminded me of a cross between "Coraline" and that old cartoon Chalk Zone. Stunning illustrations -- you don't need words to be amazed by this story, and you don't need my words to convince you. 5/5 stars

I absolutely love reading this wordless picture book trilogy by Aaron Becker with my kids. This is the first book, Journey. The books are filled with great art and small details that add all kinds of layers to the stories.

A beautiful and wonderful wordless picture book. It tells the story of a little girl with her trusty red crayon. With it she can go on a wonderful adventure and see things not seen in our world, such as flying steam ships. Excellently planned and illustrated.
