I am re-visiting connections (t to s and t to t) for the next two weeks during RW. I am looking for a few more great books to use. I wanted to use The Two of Them and Grandfathers Face (like mentioned in RWM but can't find them)...any texts that worked great for you?

When we read Beauty and the Beast, I had the students make a text to text connection to stories that have a witch, magic and a happy ending. The kids came up with several text-to-text connections. I liked how those three criteria really helped them to make the connections, and there was so many of them.

T-S
Hooway for Wodney Wat (Lester)
The Napping House (Wood)
Mrs. Katz and Tush(Polacco)
The Keeping Quilt (Polacco)
Just Plain Fancy (Placco)

T-T
Julias Baby of the World (Henkes) & Twinnies (Eve Bunting)
**The next two I did not plan but my kids found connections between them.
Owl Moon & Can't remember the title something like The Owl in the Moon anyway it is by Jonathon London
Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse (Henkes) & When Sophie Gets Angry (Molly Bang)

If you want to stick with the Granparent theme you could also try...
Grandpa Bill's Song (Yolen) **This book also worked great when we came to inferring a chartacter's personality.
When I am Old With You (Johnson)
There is also one by Mem Fox...I can't remember the name (Ggrandfather's Shoes?) I haven't read it in a long time so I can't remember but it might work.
You probably already have Now One Foot Now the Other if you are Debbie Miller groupie but if you don't have it I would also recommend it. It is one of my favorites.

I've used Tooth Trouble and Moose's loose Tooth. Both are good for T-S connections and work well together for T-T connections as well.
There is also a Wright Group book called Tania's Tooth that is great for T-s as well.
I had good luck with all of these seeing as loosing a tooth is such a big deal in 1st grade. :-)

I teach 1st grade. Toward the beginning of the year, I teach text to text by reading all the various 3 little pig stories. There are so many and the children are so familiar with the stories that it is easy for them to compare the texts.

Now I am using various Cinderella tales from different cultures. The kids are familiar with Cinderella. This week we read the Rough Faced Girl which is a Native American Cinderella tale. My class loved it and were really excited about making text to text connections.
