Anyone know good picture books or novels that they use when teaching persuasive writing? I want my students to read some good examples of persuasive writing.

I Wanna Iguana

I like the book I Wanna Iguana by Karen Kaufman.
In the story, the boy tries to convince his mom that he should get an iguana.
The boy writes his mom a letter. She writes him back. He writes another letter, etc.

It is a picture book.

I don't know if it is a good example of writing but it is cute and can show some purpose of persuasive writing.

I played a variety of commercials from YouTube - one from Progressive Insurance featuring Flo that was funny vs. one from State Farm that was serious (both selling insurance, but how were the messages different and how did they persuade you??). I also did one from Coke with the polar bears that didn't have any words vs. one for Sprite that had some young kids rapping - asked them to think about the different audiences and "voices." The kids liked the visual images and it was fun to see their different reactions to commercials that advertised the same product, but in very different ways. It led into my discussion about showing your voice - not only are you trying to persuade someone, but you have to know who your audience is, what the best way to approach it is, and how to have some facts that back up your opinions.

I LOVE I Wanna Iguana! Also, Detective La Rue books are good (picture books).
