This is a set of mentor texts to be used when teaching an "all about" books writing unit. It is difficult to find mentor texts in the library that really show young writers specifically what we want them to do, at their level. These books offer high quality examples, using exactly the criteria we have for the kids. Two books use photographs, and two have hand drawings.
You will also receive a THIRD mentor text using photographs. This extra book is ALSO included in my Informational Text - All About Books Unit - ADVANCED
These mentor texts are designed to be used in tandem with my "All About" books unit and checklist paper. However, they can be used on their own as well. The companion "All About" units (one basic and one advanced) can be found here:
