A fun author's study project for the end of the year. Students read 3+ books from several different authors (I used Peter Reynolds, Patricia Polacco, Mo Willems, Chris VanAlsburg, and Lauren Child). They read from one author "bin" each day and make generalizations on authors writing and illustration style. After they have read all authors, they pick one and create another book in the style of the author. A great project to collaborate on with the school art teacher! Includes graphic organizers, directions, rubric, and author bios.
