Product Description
As you read, you create a picture in your mind to represent the text. Good readers incorporate this skill automatically, while struggling readers often miss important details needed to visualize a story. Visualizing the text can help readers connect to the characters and setting as well as making deeper, more meaningful inferences.

Sarah, Plain and Tall is an excellent story to teach visualizing. Patricia MacLachlan’s beautiful writing and keen sense of detail lends itself well to imagery. As a historical fiction novel, understanding the setting is even more important to comprehension.

Students will need to read closely to create accurate illustrations. An excerpt from each chapter is provided to guide students in their illustrations.
