About this deal

Shifting perspectives, from close-ups to landscape views, and a layout incorporating broad spreads and boxed sequences, add drama and motion to the storytelling and echo the photographic theme.

Wiesner's wordless tale resonates with visual images that tell his story with clever wit and lively humor,". Flotsam has won the 2007 Randolph Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished American picture book for children. One thing I found hard to explain was developing photographs in today's world but we loved the book anyway.Flotsam won the Caldecott Medal in 2007 as well as being recognised by several other awards, and was chosen as the New York Times best illustrated children’s book that year. Many versions are sketched and revised until the story line flows smoothly and each image works the way he wants it to.

David Wiesner is internationally renowned for his visual storytelling and has won the Caldecott Medal three times--for Tuesday , The Three Pigs , and Flotsam --the second person in history to do so. Horn Book Magazine says, "The meticulous and rich detail of Wiesner's watercolors makes the fantasy involving and convincing. This is a three-week Writing Root for Flotsam by David Wiesner in which children dicsover a range of ‘Flotsam’ items (either after a visit to the seaside, or that have appeared in the classroom).

However, at that moment a wave hits washing all the photos away, but regardless the boy tosses the camera back into the ocean to start the cycle over again. They include purposeful writing suggestions, links to the wider curriculum so that texts can be used across other subjects, key questions as well as spelling or phonics investigations. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Children go on to read and reflect on the book, making predictions and retelling orally and in writing. They consist of a robot fish, an octopus reading, a pufferfish being used as a hot air balloon, turtles with cities on their backs, tiny visiting aliens, and giant starfish with islands on their backs.

Es una bonita historia, con elementos de fantasía, sin texto con el que los niños y niñas, o sus madres y madres, podrán relatar lo que le ocurre al protagonista a través de las imágenes por si mismos. Flotsam is a great example of a wordless picture book that creates engagement through its detailed sequence of images, rather than its text and, as such, requires a high level of inference. As an optional additional study, this could also link to a study of the history of cameras and report writing about this and could include a historical link about the way cameras have changed the way history is recorded.

This book had such an impact on my 6 year old - when we first ‘read’ it together he actually cried at the ending.
