Alex Chomiak Mrs. Smith Honors Freshman English Friday September 14th 2013 Milk „N Cookies POV Project First Person The children‟s book I’m Here represents First Person point of view because it is told from the perspective of a boy in school who thinks differently. He is in recess and alone, when he proclaims to himself “Yes I am here, I know I am. I am Here” (Robinson 8). This represents first person because we know what he is thinking, he is showing a sense of imagination. After he folds up his plane he throws it, imaging he is gliding on top through space on top of his newest creation. Second Person All you need for a Snowman is a childrens book instructing them on how to make a good snowman. This book is written in Second Person point of view because the author is talking to the reader. An example of the author talking to the reader is when she stated to the reader “Three hand-packed triple-stacked balls of snow. Hat on top, where a hat should go, thats all you need for a snowman.” (Lavallee 12). The author is instructing the reader on how to build a snowman, so the book is told in Second Person point of view because the reader is being the one spoken to. Third Person (Limited) In the book Perfectly Percy, Percy is a porcupine who loves balloons, we know that because the book is told in Third Person (Limited).The reason this book cannot be Third Person (Omniscient) is because we only know what Percy is thinking, not anyone around him. One reason we know this book is told in Third Person (Limited) because the author says “This is Percy, Percy is a Porcupine. The thing that makes percy the very happiest is BALLOONS” (Schmid 1-3). The author knows that Percy loves balloons. Therefore this book is told in Third Person (Limited). Third Person (Omniscient) Jaspers Story is about a girl who lives in china and rescues Moon Bears. This book is told in Third Person (Omniscient) as opposed to Third Person (Limited) because the author know what everyone is thinking, and how everyone is feeling. An example to back up that this book is told in Third Person (Omniscient) is when the author says “To the bears, human beings meant pain and cruelty. They had no way of knowing that the humans now standing so close were there to help them. This shows that the author knows what the bears are thinking, along with knowing what the humans are thinking. So in that case, the author knows what multiple people are thinking so this book is told in (Third Person Omniscient)
