Doctor DeSoto by William Steigi is an excellent choice as a mentor text for both reading AND writing. It has a clever plot, great examples of voice and word choice, and fabulous illustrations. This unit is intended to be used for comprehension and writing. Students analyze the text through outlining the plot events, working with vocabulary, making inferences using text examples, and by applying their learning in their own writing piece. You can get a great feel for the unit using the preview supplied.
This set can be used any time of year or in conjunction with a William Steig Author Study.
