Looking for picture books to use as mentor texts?
Each year this event gets better and better! I only participated in the first 10 for 10 back in 2010.I reread my selections and notice they haven't changed all that much. Next year I think I'll challenge myself to come up with 10 nonfiction picture books for grades 4-5. Christine
