Picture Book Study: Missuk’s Snow Geese by Anne Renaud

519z2OEmInLThis is a children’s picture book structure break down for Missuk’s Snow Geese by Anne Renaud. This breakdown will contain spoilers.

Once upon a time:

(Pages 1-4) Missuk was watching her father prepare for a hunt and asked him how to go about being a great “carver.” Her father explained that this takes a lot of practice and that he will work with her upon his return from the hunt.

Until one day:

(Pages 5-8) Missuk’s father leaves for the hunting trip, and she returns back inside the igloo to work with her mother make some gloves from seal fur.

(Pages 9-18) Missuk pulls out a goose carving that her father had made and tried her best to copy it. After being frustrated she left the carving and went out for a walk. She walks towards a hill and made observations of the beautiful surroundings. She lays down on the ground and makes bird-shaped imprints (like snow angels) near the trail that her father’s sled has left. She kept doing this until the weather had finally gotten worse and she had to return home.

And because of this:

(Pages 19-24) Later that night, with her father not having returned, Missuk has a terrible nightmare.

(Pages 20-25) She wakes up from her nightmare and is relieved to find out that her father has returned and was bed side. He soon wakes up and explains to Missuk the difficulty of his return due to the bad weather. The the only thing that guided his way back was the bird-imprints on the snow.

(Pages 26-27) At that moment, Missuk realized that in time, she would also be a great carver.
