ianmclean This digital slideshow was brainstormed by Class 3/4L at Penrith Public School in 2014. We were inspired by the powerful cover image of the picture book, "One red shoe", written by Karin Gruss and illustrated by Tobias Krejtschi (published by Wilkins Farago, 2014). We hope you enjoy our ideas!
ianmclean "People say that bulls hate red, but they are actually charging at the matador's cape because it's moving."
ianmclean We were literally "surrounded by red" when brainstorming this production. Most of the images came from red objects found on display in the school library, and a few are from my own albums. The result is quite reminiscent of the poems of Mary O'Neill in her classic book, "Hailstones and halibut bones: adventures in poetry and color" (first published in 1961), although the students were not exposed to it. Yet. ;)
