About this deal

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.

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. A bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam--anything floating that has been washed ashore.Caldecott Medal Committee Chair Janice Del Negro has said of Flotsam, "Telling tales through imagery is what storytellers have done through the ages. His books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have won numerous awards in the US and all over the globe. These branches are designed to support home learners to access literature-based learning using a selection of books we love from Writing Roots. He creates three-dimensional models of objects he can't observe in real life, such as flying pigs and lizards standing upright, to add authenticity to his drawings. 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.

He went on to become a student at the Rhode Island School of Design, where he was able to commit himself to the full-time study of art and to explore further his passion for visual storytelling. Wiesner's wordless tale resonates with visual images that tell his story with clever wit and lively humor,".

David Wiesner is one of the best-loved and most highly acclaimed picture book creators in the world. But there’s no way he could have prepared for one particular discovery: a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share . Many versions are sketched and revised until the story line flows smoothly and each image works the way he wants it to.

This book is about a boy who finds a camera on the beach I like this book because it is interesting. A bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam-anything floating that has been washed ashore.David Wiesner is internationally renowned for his visual storytelling and has won the Caldecott Medal three times--for Tuesday , The Three Pigs , and Flotsam --the second person in history to do so. 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. They include purposeful writing suggestions, links to the wider curriculum so that texts can be used across other subjects, key questions as well as spelling or phonics investigations.

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.
