Picture Book Critique #14
Written By: George Shannon
Illustrated By: Donald Crews
1. Picture Book Genre: Alphabet
2. Brief Summary: George Shannon takes a clever twist on a traditional alphabet picture book in Tomorrow’s Alphabet by first stating the letter and showing an element that would turn into the word used on the next page, for example: K is for tomato – tomorrow’s Ketchup and M is for caterpillar – tomorrow’s Moth. Shannon’s alphabet book uses both scientific elements and traditional alphabet instruction to teach students both the order of the alphabet as well as the process by which objects are created.
A. Area for comment: The best feature of this book is that along with being a traditional alphabet picture book it also incorporates scientific understandings of how things are formed or created.
B. Professional Evaluation: Tomorrow’s Alphabet takes an interesting twist on a traditional alphabet picture book by displaying first the letter of the alphabet featured and then how the object (word) is formed. By combining science and language arts this book makes learning about the alphabet interesting and new and can be used inside of the classroom as a means to truly begin to learn not only about the alphabet but also about science. Overall, this book is fun, interesting and entertaining!
C. Specific Example: Each set of pages is yet another great example of how the author and illustrator use this interesting twist on the traditional alphabet book to not only teach the alphabet but also teach scientific elements as well. One great example can be found on the pages for the letter B stating “B is for eggs – tomorrow’s Birds” and “E is for campfire – tomorrow’s embers.” Page after page the author and illustrator use great examples to teach not only the alphabet but also science.
4. Curriculum Connection: There are a number of great elements found throughout this book as it not only vibrantly highlights the letters of the alphabet on their own page it also features the scientific elements of how beings or objects are formed. This book would be great to use not only during a language arts lesson but also during a science lesson in which the students can research, compare and contrast how things are made and/or created, such as twigs forming a nest or milk creating cheese. The uses of this book are endless as teachers can teach and students can learn the alphabet in a fun and interesting way.
