Librio Library #44 – Journey – Aaron Becker2 Minute Read
Why we chose “Journey”
Anybody who already knows our Librio Library probably knows that we have a love of wordless picture books. We’ve got a few in there, including a book about a hike in the mountains, a story about a school trip to the moon (!) and even a picture book about mindfulness and generosity. In theme with this, today’s blog article is about another wordless picture book.
In the story “Journey”, the main character escapes her rather ‘dull’ life with a simple piece of chalk. With this, she draws a door on the wall of her bedroom and escapes into a magical, imaginative world full of adventures, surprises and wonderful encounters. In other words, an exciting journey takes place.
Aaron Becker for the most part chose to use rather bland dull or green colors. The colorful scene in which the little girl travels on the magic carpet therefore immediately caught our attention.

Adults will like
The main character breaks out her humdrum life and creates her own world full of color, adventure and excitement. Let’s face it, we’re pretty sure a lot of us have often fantasized about something like this!
