Yesterday Mrs Thieme read us the beautiful book “The Giving Tree” by Shel Siverstein. Mrs Thieme says this is her favourite book, but she says that about all her books!!!
The cover of the book is in colour but all the illustrations in the inside are in black and white!
.We came up with some reasons, why we thought the author did not colour the pictures.
He didn’t have any pencils. Zoe
He needed help. Emily
He was too tired. Ela
He did not want to colour in. Mason
He didn’t like colouring in. Grace M
He was too old.Gracie
He is not good at colouring in. Zoe.
It might have been in the olden days. Ela
Mrs Thieme asked what we knew about the olden days?
There was olden day cars. Declan
There was farms and the horses were older.Ella- Rose
Buildings were on fire. Mason
There were wars. Zoe
There were dinosaurs. Grace M
It was difficult. Lilly
Olden stuff got made. Grace M
There were pirates. Zoe
All of the birds died. Spencer
Lots of stuff was black and white and there was smashed buildings and houses. Ela
There was a war and I think that’s why there were crashed buildings. Elaina
In the olden days there was a frog who drank all the water in the world and there was an animal that made the frog laugh and he giggled and then all the water came back out and he turned into a statue. Ela
