All good stories have a beginning and an end, of course, but oh, the middle! The middle is where the story really happens, and the young storyteller in One Day, The End by Rebecca Kai Dotlich, illustrated by Fred Koehler, shares her stories with us to that effect. Each page has a large text beginning and end, but the pictures actually carry the middle where her story is found. In “I Went to School. I Came Home. The End” we are offered small glimpses of the triumphs and failures she experiences during one day at school. In “One Day I Made Something. I Gave It to My Mom. The End” we watch as the storyteller’s creativity splashes (literally) across the kitchen in pursuit of the perfect gift for her mother, with the last story summing up all of her tales! A beautiful cross between word-book and wordless-book, this story is great for lap time reading with pre and early readers, and for helping teach your young writers learn about story structure.
