DUDE! by Aaron Reynolds

This is a brand new book I got a few days ago from my addiction called Amazon! DUDE! is written by Aaron Reynolds.  The same author that brought you Creepy Carrots and A Creepy Pair of Underwear!  I love how this book appears to be simple, but my mind started swirling on all of the lesson ideas I could pull from it.

Essentially, the ONLY word in the book is “Dude.”  The illustrations and the punctuation carries the meaning!  So I started thinking about writing and how this book would lend itself perfectly for writers workshop!  These lessons would provide proof that books can be comprised of illustrations and yet, they can certainly tell a story!

This page makes me think about the writer’s perspective!  Think about how students could think differently about how they illustrate their stories!  So great for point of view lessons.

This would make a perfect page to talk about drawing characters’ emotions.  You could also talk about voice.  Notice the size of Shark’s dude?  The print is so small and fine, not to mention the punctuation!  How does the size of the print effect the way that it sounds?  What does this tell us about the shark?  How might we use this in our own writing?

And this page just makes me just laugh out loud.  Students could learn how to build anticipation in their story through illustrations!
