A Stone Sat Still by Brendan Wenzel; illustrated by Brendan Wenzel

A Stone Sat StillA Stone Sat Still by Brendan Wenzel; illustrated by Brendan Wenzel. 2019. Variety of media such as cut paper, colored pencil, oil pastels, marker, and the computer. Published by Chronicle Books.

Brief summary: A stone is examined as being something different to many creatures of the forest. It has many functions even when it is later totally submerged under the water. It sits still throughout.

Comments: Loved how this would help children see different perspectives  and meanings for one object that stays stationed.

Large two-paged layouts that students in the back could also see if sharing with a group.

I would pair this with Brendan Wenzel’s earlier book, They All Saw a Cat.

I would refer to this story whenever there is a difference of opinion about something to demonstrate how we can have different perspectives to the same event.
