Transcript of My Inspirational Person

Why I chose that passage
A scene which uses imagery in my book is when Alex and Conner fall through the story book their grandmother gave them, and landed in the Land of Stories. This scene shows imagery because it clearly explains the land around them (the two kids) by describing all the trees, the plants, animals, and so on, so we know how the land looks like.

Describe: The scene uses imagery by describing all the land around Alex and Conner, using vivid words to create a clear picture in your mind.

Contribution: The setting contributes to the significance of the scene because when the author describes the setting, we know where the story takes place, or, in other words, we know where currently the main characters are.
Theodor Seuss Geisel was born on 2nd March 1904, however, he is know as Dr Seuss.

Dr Seuss is an American writer, poet, and cartoonist most widely known for children's picture books written and illustrated.

His books were and are still very popular with children worldwide. Over 200 million copies had been printed for families all over the world.

Biography of Dr Seuss
Books by Dr Seuss:
Why I chose Dr Seuss
Dr Seuss studied English at Oxford University, this was where he met his wife Helen Palmer.
At first, he worked with various magizines as a cartoonist.
His first book was called 'And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street'.
World War II interrupted Dr. Seuss' career as a children's book author. When the war was over, Dr. Seuss returned to his career as a successful children's author.
“I swung ’round the corner

And dashed up through the gate

I ran up the steps

And felt simply GREAT!”
- A quote from 'And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street' by Dr Seuss
Similarities & Differences
>List the similarities between yourself and the main character here.

>We both like animal. ...and here...

>We both have a nice dad. ...and here...
Miyax/Julie is a girl
I am American not Eskimonian.
Make a connection
I want to be able to understand and speak to animals like Miyax/Julie.
Theme of novel
I think the theme of the novel is that if you can learn an animal's language you can live in harmony.
Four Quotes to support the theme
1-"She spoke half in Eskimo and half in English, as if the instincts of her father and the science of the gussaks, the white-faced, might evoke some magical combination that would help her get her message through to the wolf." pg. 8-9

2-•“Why had he bared his teeth at her? Because she was young and he knew she couldn't hurt him? No, she said to herself, it was because he was speaking to her! He had told her to lie down. She had even understood and obeyed him. He had talked to her not with his voice, but with his ears, eyes, and lips; and he had even commended her with a wag of his tail.14-15
3 - "We Eskimos have joking partners - to have fun with - and serious partners -

people to work and think with.

4 - "I understand that."
If you have any questions, you can ask them now...
'Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You'- Dr Seuss
Dr Seuss after death
My Favourite Quote by Dr Seuss
'You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.
You're on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go....'
-Dr. Seuss, Oh! The Places You'll Go!
Dr Seuss is inspirational to me because:

He was and still is a very successful writer
His stories always had a good moral that children could relate to
He believed in having fun in life
Dr seuss had a very positive view on life and only saw the good, not the bad
He never asked people to agree with him, he just said what he felt
Dr Seuss died of cancer on September 24, 1991 at the age of 87.

However, that wasn't the end of his books. In 2000 'The Grinch Who Stole Christmas' was made into a film. 'The Cat In The Hat' and 'Horton Hears a Who' were also made into a movie.

"Be who you are and say what you want, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind."

- A quote from Dr Seuss
