Rosie’s Walk Assignment

Sometimes pictures in children’s books represent the exact story being told (as in Too Many Tamales). Other times, they add details that students would be able to understand, but not necessarily understand the words to describe the events (as in All Different Now: Juneteenth, the First Day of Freedom). In other books, the images tell a totally different story than the words. These books are usually humorous and help young children develop inferencing skills. (as in Rosie’s Walk)


Watch this video and discuss the ways in which the story helps tell the story, add additional details, and tell a different story.

Add any links to books (outside the required readings) that you have found that either:

1) tell the exact story

2) add details that students could grasp, but be able to articulate

3) tell a totally different story
