Avirama Golan õ 0 SummaryAt the story is about I think that the cover is fun and playful making students want to read the book Karas takes reat care to use simple lines and soft colors to convey the story Karas structured her pictures so well that this book could have been a wordless book and you still would have Best Loved Indian Stories of the Century, Vol. II gotten the story that even though Naomi and Little Chick are different they are similar too I believe that Karas did an amazing job to make the illustrations have textures for example you could see how soft therass looked because of her light lines of a colored pencil The use #Of Shadowing To Create Pictures That Have #shadowing to create pictures that have and life like ualities were beautifully done I loved the way Karas used both pages one page for Naomi and the other for Little Chick Naomi was on a lot of white space while little chick was on the other page with full color I think that this conveys the point that Little Chick is the star of the story with little being said about Little Chick The illustrations of Naomi were simply drawn but still have a lot of detail and character You fall in love with Little Chick because of the attitude of the little farm animal Each page you examine Little Chick closely and he becomes the one you attitude of the little farm animal Each page you examine Little Chick closely and he becomes the one you for on the next page I think that the story line is lifted because of the illustrations and would fall flat if Karas had not planned the illustrations so carefully Karas s use of texture white space full color and simply drawn images make me wish that a Caldecott Medal were Being Hindu [Paperback] [Jan 01, 2016] Hindol Sengupta given to show how creative the illustrations truly were A charming book with delightful illustrations It s a fun story about a preschooler and a chickoing in a similar direction but not meeting yet having a friendship of being understood Chick stays home with other barnyard friends while Naomi starts her morning routine before heading to preschool Once there she plays with friends colors builds bakes and then shops with her mommy and eats with daddy all in one day Plus there s bath time and lullabies before bed With simple text early readers will enjoy every detail I especially like the rhythm and repetition of reading aloud with my Bookless in Baghdad and Other Writings About Reading grandchildren But NOT little chick I randomly found this book while browsing the children s section of the library It is a book translated from the Hebrew I m not sure exactly the point of it to be honest as the two stories didn t really have a correlation unless the point was to show the differences Naomi isoing to kindergarten and is a ood obedient child who does all that is expected of her whereas Little Chick does not but they both end up snuggling with their families at the end of the day I liked the illustrations Recommended for ages 3 7 3 stars. Fun book two parallel stories run side by side linked by the implicit friendship between Naomi and Little Chick and brought to life by endearing illustrations. .
