  • Amelia's Fantastic Flight Case Study

    Amelia’s Fantastic Flight, written by Rose Bursik is intended for children ages 4-7 was published March 15, 1994. Amelia’s Fantastic Flight is 32-page paperback story that tells of a young girl named Amelia (Earhart) who loved airplanes so much, that she built one. Then, she used the airplane to fly to 15 different countries such as Brazil, Kenya, Egypt, France, Finland, Russia and India all before time for dinner. Bursik paired fun alliterations regarding the countries Amelia visited including “France was fun” and she was “freezing in Finland” that are sure to keep young children entertained. The book also contains two full-spread maps, one in the beginning and one at the end. In addition, it has small inset maps throughout the book that allows children to follow Amelia’s journey easier as the location of each country visited is highlighted on the map on the top of each illustration. However, the author does not provide any background information regarding the subject of the book and it is unclear what parts of the story are factual and what is fiction rather than using predetermined knowledge and common sense, which may not be capable for younger readers. The fact that Amelia is not referred to by her full name is also an issue for me as children may not have any idea who she is if not discussed by an adult first. The book does not contain any factual information, however could be used as a good story in the form of a simple picture book to introduce children to different…

  • Contrast Between Country And Country By Philip Larkin

    untouched by human influence. However, the second stanza retains none of this positivity; the reader is trapped behind the ‘plate-glass swing doors’ of consumerism. Throughout the poem Larkin’s descriptions tend to rely less on descriptive adjectives, which appear infrequently, and more on series of images relating to the place being described. When descriptive adjectives are used, they are used to brilliant effect; the ‘luminously-peopled air’ and the ‘piled- gold clouds’, but the lists of…
