Product Description
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.3.7
Explain how specific aspects of a text's illustrations contribute to what is conveyed by the words in a story (e.g., create mood, emphasize aspects of a character or setting)

The author/illustrator, Chris Van Allsburg is a wonder and his realistic artwork certainly brings possibilities to the world of make believe! How can a reader not believe when the scenes are so life-like. I loved the book The Garden of Abdul Gasazi and the cover grabbed my attention immediately. Being from OHIO, I have taken my students on a field trip to our capital, Columbus and have shown them the famous Topiary Garden there. The cover of this children's book captivated me with its playful topiary garden. Included in this guide are a few points and comparisons between the artists of both the Topiary Garden in Columbus and the artist of this novel! James Mason and Chris Van Allsburg.

A nineteen (19) page workbook for students to help them make connections between the artwork, visuals and the text makes an easy, navigate-able tool for your students. It also gives them some insight to how an artist may work and the WHY behind some of their questions.
Literary device such as Foreshadowing is also defined and allows the students to predict, infer and look for hints in both the text and illustrations.
The answers are provided for your convenience as well as a couple of web links.
