Twig is a delightful picture book written and illustrated by Aura Parker that Year Ones have enjoyed reading in the library. It is filled with colourful insects that are fun to identify and count and contains an important message about making friends in the school playground.
Heidi is a stick insect starting at Bug school, but she is finding it hard to make friends when she is camouflaging herself too well and the other students can’t see her! Thank goodness her teacher Miss Orb comes up with a plan where everyone can help Heidi…
The Year Ones watched the book trailer for Twig for a ‘taste’ of the story
The Year Ones learned how to draw Heidi with Aura
First they watched the video below of Aura drawing Heidi and then we all drew along step by step with Aura as I stopped the video. The Year Ones also added something to Heidi to help her stand out and be seen by her new friends in the playground…except for when she played Hide and Seek of course!
Illustrations of Heidi by 1GD, 1JM and 1MH
You can see all of the Year One illustrations and read Twig for yourself in our library….
