Cole used sketches and shading in his illustration of the book, The Falling Flowers. He incorporated framing, vertical and horizontal lines, and a pattern of rectangular shapes. The two main characters in the story stood out in a dominant role in the artwork surrounded by negative space. Reed’s text stood alone on the opposite side of the page which was framed in a consistent blue, rectangular pattern that was connected by the background shapes. It unified the picture and created some predictability. Kids will be able to relate to this story because it shows a bond between adult and child. It also awakens their desire to go places and see new things.

Lesson Plan: Design and picture of your favorite vacation spot. Include as many geometric shapes as you can while keeping it creative.
