Our Picture Book - Pukeko's A - Z School Travels

Room 4 have been busy writing narratives over the past 5 weeks. We have also been reading lots of picture books an fairy tales to get ideas for our narratives. One of the interesting picture books that inspired us was "Animalia" by Graeme Base - it is full of vivid language, alliteration and uses the A - Z writing format.

We used some of these ideas when creating our Feet First Picture Book based on safe travel to school.

Our main character is Pukeko (named after one of our school houses). He wants to get to Bird School in lots of different ways. Have a read and see what you think!

It is called "Pukeko's A - Z School Travels"

I love those illustrations of Pukekos. You must all be experts by now. I am going to show my Y1 class next week when we get back to school.

Wow, what an adventure Pukeko has had! I love the illustrations and alliteration. You are obviously a clever, creative and cool class ;)

I will be reading this book to my two year old tomorrow and I know she will love it.

Thanks for sharing your book online. I think it is fantastic! It was really interesting to read, and I love your illustrations as well. I have told some other people about your book, so they can look as well!
