JOURNEY by Aaron Becker

Posted on Updated on

untitledA little girl can’t seem to find anyone to play with her.  Her parents and sister are just too busy, and she doesn’t have any friends.  But when she finds a red marker on the floor of her room, she draws a door on the wall and escapes into an amazing imaginary world where she and her marker create wonderful adventures.  In the end, her courage and imagination may win her a new friendship.

This beautifully creative wordless picture book will appeal to imaginative preschool and school-age children.  It may be difficult to use in storytime with a large group, but with a few children or one-on-one, the pictures open the door for conversation about what is happening in the detailed fantasy tale.  Consider pairing Journey with David Wiesner’s Flotsam.
