After tweeting some ideas around which is how I find my best leads, I located a great Choice Literacy post and video with Franki Sibberson. I loved what I saw. Clearly Franki is someone who understands what I needed to do. I immediately ordered a few of the suggested books. Click on the link now, trust me. I'll wait.
It could be used:
- to build stamina in that there are chapters that are linked, but have enough meat in them where a child might not be able to get through the entire book at one sitting.
- for narrative writing as the story is personal enough for a child to make life to text connections.
- for information writing as there is a part where Henry must research and report out about his new duck pet. In addition, there are pages with labels, parts of a newspaper, and how tos.
- for opinion writing as the story is about how Henry convinces his parents and himself which pet would be perfect for him.
