Passing on happy knowledge

The book “old pig” by Margaret Wild and the illustrator Ron Brooks. The book “passing on” by Mike Dumbleton and the illustrator, Terry Denton are similar because both grandmas died in the books. In “passing on” the boy was passing on the knowledge from grandma to the younger brother. The characters in “old pig” were old pig and granddaughter pig (my opinion is the book is sad but is boring)

My feelings were sad, upset and a bit mad and I felt like crying. The reason I was upset is because both grandmas died in both books.

Grandma pig and granddaughter pig did cleaning, washing and all chores together. Granddaughter always ate her oats if it mean’t old pig stays alive.

The main event is that grandma pig died but before she dies she takes granddaughter pig out for a walk to say “enjoy what you have in the world”.

Old pig goes out closes her bank and pays the bills to prepare for her death.

The knowledge of Old Pig

 

We have been reading a class book called ‘Old Pig’ by the author Margaret Wild and the illustrator is Ron Brooks. The main characters are Old pig and her granddaughter who are important because they help each and do their chores side by side showing friendship and happiness.

 

The book tells the story of an Old Pig who celebrates her life. Granddaughter pig was left doing her chores alone because Old Pig was sick/dying. Old Pig and the granddaughter pig were doing their chores together at the start of Old Pig.

 

A key event is when Old Pig celebrates her life because she knows that she is dying. Another key event is at the start of the book, it is when Old pig and granddaughter pig did their chores together at the start of Old pig.

 

The aspects of the main characters are that both Old Pig and the granddaughter do everything side by side helping each other along the way.

 

I believe the Author Margaret Wild and the illustrator Ron Brooks write this to show us what it is like to have someone die in your life.

Old Pig and Passing on

Old Pig and Passing On are similar because there are a grandmother in both books and they die. The author of Old Pig is Margaret Wild and the illustrator is Ron Brooks. The author of Passing On is Mike Dumbleton and the illustrator is Terry Denton. In both books at the start the characters do the things they like to do, and there is love in both books. The books are both picture fiction.

I felt happy in both books because, at the start of both books the characters do the stuff they like doing. In the book “Old Pig,” Grandmother Pig and Granddaughter Pig do the chores and they like doing the chores. In the book “Passing On,” Grandmother and Grandson paint fences, and go fishing and they like painting fences and fishing. They do it together to have more fun.

I felt a bit sad in both books because at the end of both booksGrandmothers die. But I felt happy about that to, I felt happy because in “Old Pig,” Grandmother Pig passes on knowledge to Granddaughter Pig and in “Passing On,” Grandmother Passes on knowledge to Grandson.

I think the author Margaret Wild wrote “Old Pig,” to make the reader feel sad i.e. when Grandmother Pid died. From the book “Old pig,” Grandmother Pig did not get up as she usually did and the author tried to make you a bit sad, confused and thinking what will happen to Grandmother Pig.

I think the author Mike Dumbleton wrote “Passing On,” to say pass on knowledge to your grandchild/grandchildren. So they pass on knowledge to their kids, and they pass on knowledge to their kids.

Old Pig and Passing On Literary Response

The Author of “Old Pig” is Margaret Wild and the Illustrator  is Ron Brooks. The main characters of the book “Old Pig” are Grandmother Pig and Granddaughter Pig. The Author of “Passing On ” is Mike Dumbleton and the Illustrator is Terry Denton. The main characters of the book “Passing On” are the Grandmother and the Grandson.

In both of these books they talk about two Grandmothers who are dying. The pictures are colourful and light when they are happy and towards the end of both books the pictures get dark and unhappy.

I was sad when the Grandmother Pig in “Old Pig” passed away because the Little Pig had to live on her own and would have missed her Grandmother.  In Passing On the Grandmother passes on her knowledge and kindness to her Grandson. One example of this is when the Grandmother took her Grandson’s hand because he was scared of the waves at the beach. Then after the Grandmother passed away the Grandson was at the beach with his little Brother and the Brother was scared of the waves. The Grandson had learned to help others and held his Brother’s hand just like his Grandmother did. I thought that was nice.
