When we come back after break, my students are learning about identifying the author's message. It's actually a review lesson. I'd like to read a picture book mentor text and then have the students response to what they think the lesson is with 3 clear pieces of text evidence to back it up. However, I want to make sure there is a picture book with 3 clear pieces of evidence. The one I've used in the past is great for identifying the lesson, but it's pretty much just 1 piece of very clear evidence. Any ideas for books?

I'm sure Patricia Pollacco has several that would fit. They JUST read Thank you Mr. Faulkner in library, so I don't want to use that one. Maybe "My Rotten Red Headed Older Brother?" "Pink and Say"?

Amazing Grace by Mary Hoffman is a good one, too. Any other ideas?

My favorite picture book to use with lessons was Pink & Say.

I also liked using The Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton. After I read the book and do the lesson I will show them Dolly singing the song on YouTube.

Here are some that I have used:

Lily’s Plastic Purse
Bad Case of Stripes
Chair For My Mother
The Story of Ferdinand
The Paper Bag Princess
Enemy Pie

I hope this helps.
