In Polar Bear Morning, by Lauren Thompson, there is quite a lot of diction and imagery that helps readers visualize the story in their minds. An example of imagery is, “The snow and ice, and the clear blue sky”. Readers could clearly picture and feel how cold it was, and how the land was covered in snow. The illustrations by Steven Savage help people visualize the scene. Also, an example of alliteration, is “Snowy something”. Thompson described the snowy vicinity of the area when she included alliteration. The diction “Sparkling snow” and “Glinting sea” makes the writing more vivid, and readers can visualize the snow sparkling and the sea glinting. Readers will enjoy this story because figurative writing styles are important, so people can picture things more easily and clearly when they are reading. The illustrations helped put the whole story together too. ND
