About this deal

Many versions are sketched and revised until the story line flows smoothly and each image works the way he wants it to.

These branches are designed to support home learners to access literature-based learning using a selection of books we love from Writing Roots. The author and illustrator, David Wiesner, is famous for creating other wordless texts, such as Tuesday and Free Fall. Children go on to read and reflect on the book, making predictions and retelling orally and in writing.But there's no way he could have prepared for one particular discovery: a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share . 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. 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 his parents tell him it was time to go, he decided to continue the chain by using the camera to take a picture of himself.

Flotsam has won the 2007 Randolph Caldecott Medal for the most distinguished American picture book for children. Caldecott Medal Committee Chair Janice Del Negro has said of Flotsam, "Telling tales through imagery is what storytellers have done through the ages. 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). At heart it is a humorous fantasy story that also looks closely at the cyclical nature of life, as well as the ultimate power of nature.This book is about a boy who finds a camera on the beach I like this book because it is interesting. Spelling Seeds have been designed to complement Writing Roots by providing weekly, contextualised sequences of sessions for the teaching of spelling that include open-ended investigations and opportunities to practise and apply within meaningful and purposeful contexts, linked (where relevant) to other areas of the curriculum and a suggestion of how to extend the investigation into home learning.

The final photo consists of a girl, who is holding a photo of a boy, who is holding a photo of a boy, who is holding a photo of a girl, and so on.His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards in the United States and abroad. A bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam--anything floating that has been washed ashore. 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.

Wiesner offers another exceptional, wordless picture book that finds wild magic in quiet, everyday settings. 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. Published by Clarion/Houghton Mifflin in 2006, it was the 2007 winner of the Caldecott Medal; [1] the third win for David Wiesner. A bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam-anything floating that has been washed ashore.
