Question time!

What does the fact that she is ‘trudging’ through the forest tell you about how she is feeling?

What does ‘lethargic’ mean?

Why would ‘making the most of the remaining daylight’ be crucial?

Why are the trees compared to sentinels?

What might happen in the forest when night falls? What is she so afraid of?

Who might ‘she’ be?

Have you ever been lost? What does it feel like?

Perfect picture!

Can you draw 5 things you would like to have with you if you were lost in a forest in the middle of nowhere?

You could then explain why each item might be valuable.
