L.C: To ask relevant questions. 


When reading a book or looking at illustrations (pictures) we should be asking questions.


This story is titled


I am looking carefully at the picture, thinking about what I can see and what I would like to know...


Is the little girl feeling upset?

Why is she feeling upset?

I am asking this because she is rubbing her eyes. 


Why is she alone?

I cannot see anyone else in the picture. 


Could she be upset because she is alone?

I am linking my ideas together to create possible answers


Who is the little girl?

What is her name?

Where is her family?

Thinking about the character, usually we find out who they are and all about them. 



What is on the sand in front of her?

Could it be bubbles?

I can see that there is a cylinder shaped object in the sand but I am not sure what it is however on thinking deeper the title of the story is Bubbles, so maybe they could be bubbles. 


Where is the beach that she is walking along?

I can tell it is a beach because of the sand and the shore line. It could be somewhere warm because the little girl is wearing shorts.


I wonder, is it night time?

The sky looks quite dark in the picture.


What is going to happen next?

Now, I am going to start thinking and making predictions about what could happen in the story

Have you thought of any questions that you would like to find out about?

All these questions help us to think  deeper and understand  a story in more detail.
