Illustration Analysis

Illustration Quick Write


As children, we often read picture books, which are filled with illustrations. When we begin to read “chapter books” and novels, we find most of them have no illustrations. In a Quick Write, consider why books are illustrated and how that affects your reading.

  • How would your reading be affected if a novel came with illustrations?
  • Do you prefer to read novels without illustrations?
  • How does having a novel with illustrations compare with watching a movie version?
