Read a Book-Make a Book will help you encourage your students to use the books they read as seeds to sprout new ideas and more books! Teachers and students read a referenced literature title and then create a class or individual book in response.

Each book-making project includes "After You Read" -- ideas for discussing each book. These suggestions serve as a prewriting lesson to the "Now Write!" activity. Each project has an original poem written to accompany it.

A few of the 38 literature titles featured include:

  • picture books such as “Stellaluna” and “Have You Seen My Duckling?”
  • chapter books such as “How to Eat Fried Worms” and “The BFG”
  • classics such as “Mr. Popper's Penguins” and “Make Way for Ducklings”
