We will be studying the book, Return, by Aaron Becker for Book Week in week 10. This coincides with our school Book Week theme of Escape to Anywhere.
Aaron Becker is the award-winning creator of Journey and its stunning, celebrated sequel, Quest. His final book Return invites students’ in to a luminous, wordless fantasy. Failing to get the attention of her busy father, a lonely girl turns back to a fantastic world for friendship and adventure. It’s her third journey into the enticing realm of kings and emperors, castles and canals, exotic creatures and enchanting landscapes.
Students will study the book and participate in some activities that showcase the book throughout the coming weeks. For the Book Week Parade in week 10, students are able to dress up as one of the characters, creatures, objects or even something they have imagined as part of the book. The options are limitless as the story provokes the students’ imagination and the worlds that they could enter in to if they allow themselves to imagine it.
