THEME The message about life or human nature that the author shares with the reader. Answers this question: What is the author saying about being human??? The author does not tell you the theme, it must be inferred
Formula for Finding Theme In (name of story), (author) suggests that when people (behave/think/feel like this), (this is the result). In Beauty and the Beast, Walt Disney suggests that when people judge each other by what they look like, they miss out on each other’s inner beauty.
There can be hundreds of themes in a story, BUT… you will ALWAYS need to support your theme with evidence from the text.
How to Find a Theme Ask yourself… How does this story relate to MY life??? 1. What does the author wants me (the reader) to learn? 2. What is the author saying to me about being human? 3. What did the protagonist learn?
Examples of Theme in Children’s Books In The Three Little Pigs, James Orchard suggests that when people take their time to do a job right, the product will last longer. Evidence: The story was about three pigs who build a house to protect themselves from a wolf. The only pig that succeeded was the one who took his time and used brick instead of straw or sticks.
In Pinocchio, Walt Disney suggests that when people lie, they hurt their loved ones and lose their trust. Evidence: In the movie, Pinocchio wanted to become a real boy but he lied to Geppetto and his nose grew longer with each lie. Geppetto’s feelings were hurt and he didn’t know if he could trust Pinocchio to be a boy instead of a puppet.
In Beauty and the Beast, Walt Disney suggests that when people judge each other by what they look like, they miss out on each other’s inner beauty. Evidence: In the movie, Belle and the townspeople hated the beast because of the way he looked. When Belle took the time to get to know the beast, she found out he was kind and gentle and they fell in love.
Theme: In Green Eggs and Ham, Dr. Seuss suggests that when people are willing to try new things, they might find something they really like! Evidence: Sam encouraged his friend to try a food he thought he hated (green eggs), and he discovered he really likes them.
In (name of story), (author) suggests that when people (behave/think/feel like this), (this is the result). Sentence 1 & 2: In the story ___________ For example, (examples of the behavior) Sentence 3: As a result (consequence/result) Sentence 4: Concluding Sentence Therefore, (restate the theme)
