This book is a great way to introduce key lessons to elementary students, including comparing and contrasting, picking up on key themes, and analyzing vocabulary words. Including storyboards in these activities will enhance creativity and comprehension due to the visual nature of storyboarding!
Amos and Boris by William Steig | Amos and Boris Theme
"What other whale in all the world ever had the chance to get to know such a strange creature as you! Please climb aboard."
Boris shows friendship to Amos by saving him and offering to take him to shore before meeting with the other whales. During the long journey, they talk and become the best of friends. Amos told Boris that he was grateful and that if Boris ever needed his help he would be happy to give it.
Amos shows friendship to Boris by saving his life. A hurricane forced Boris up on the shore and the quick-thinking mouse ran to get elephants to push Boris back to the sea.
