This is a lit log for Two Naomis by Olugbemisola Rhuday-Perkovich and Audrey Vernick. It is a wonderful book written in the alternating perspectives of two 10 year old girls. Themes include: blended (step) families, marriage and divorce, growing up, friendship, sisters, and social skills.
The key focus skills of the lit log are: 1.) use text to explain/draw inferences; make personal comments/connections and 2.) compare/contrast point of view. Other focus skills are: 1.) determine theme/summarize and 2.) describe characters, setting, events.
This lit log can be used for a guide as a read aloud (at school or with your children) or for direct reading instruction (guided reading, novel study, literature group).
