How to Read a Story by Kate Messner, Illustrated by Mark Siegel ©2015
I love picture books! Picture books are not just for young children or young readers—they are for everybody. Who doesn’t like to listen to a story?
Picture books often take us back to an earlier time in our life and remind us of a younger self. Picture books also help us see more clearly many of the interpretations needed for English Language Arts in middle and senior grades. They serve as excellent mentor texts.
Kate Messner, author of the Marty McGuire chapter book series, provides ten essential steps for reading a story while Mark Siegel provides charming illustrations. You will need your reading voice to share this book with students or your own children and it will be so much fun that you may have to “go right back to the beginning and start all over again.”
How to Read a Story would be a great first book to read aloud for teachers and librarians.
