Reflection: Joy Recipes from the Reef: What's Needed for an Oceanic Narrative? - Section 5: Review


Throughout the rest of the day, and even over the next few days, whenever we have time, I pull out some other "sea-inspired" narratives.  I ask the kids to identify the story elements in each of them, and have them share anything in particular that they really liked about the story that made it enjoyable for them to read!  Some suggestions for additional narratives that I like to use are:

Bats at the Beach by Brian Lies

Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach by Melanie Watt

Traction Man and the Beach Odyssey by Mini Grey

To the Beach by Thomas Docherty
