ELIZABETH AND THE GREAT FOREST (SERIES 1) ELIZABETH AND THE STRANGE ISLAND (SERIES 2)

Bernadeth Febyola Linando, Budi Darma

Abstract


Children literature is one way to deliver important moral values to children all over the world. Therefore, I made Elizabeth and The Great Forest (Series 1) and Elizabeth and The Strange Island (Series 2) as my creative work for the final project. In those two books, I want to bring up some issues which are; technology cannot replace direct interaction between people, fears are not supposed to be avoided but to be faced, and mother-daughter relationship is the most important relationship. The first book will focus on technology that damages a girl’s social life and a girl’s bravery in overcoming her own fears. The second book will focus on mother-daughter relationship with sub-theme: overcoming the characters’ own fears. Through the girl’s journeys, she will finally realize that technology cannot replace human interaction, people need to overcome their own fears, and mother-daughter relationship is the most important relationship ever in her life.
