Another

  • Title: Another
  • Author: Christian Robinson
  • Illustrator: Christian Robinson
  • Publisher: Atheneum Books for Young Readers, and imprint of Simon & Schuster
  • Publication year: 2019
  • Brief Summary: From Simon & Schuster-“In his eagerly anticipated debut as author-illustrator, Caldecott and Coretta Scott King honoree Christian Robinson brings young readers on a playful, imaginative journey into another world.”
  • Ideas for using this book in classroom or library –This could be used in a literature class, especially evidenced in this article from The Horn Book explaining how this book could be used to show the hero’s journey. Like the other (almost) wordless book, Tuesday, I reviewed, you could also have children make their own story to this book.
  • Whatever additional notes you’d like to add about this book and why you liked or didn’t like it –Although this picture book is wordless, I think it conveys more than even if it had text present. There is a lot more going on in this book, from the wonder of imagination, to the diversity of the children present in this “other-world.” I think my favorite illustration is actually of the two cats running into the portal, with our surprised protagonist looking on in wonder.
