This resource will help you encourage your students to use the books they read as seeds to sprout new ideas and more books! In Read a Book - Make a Book teachers and students read a referenced literature title and then create a class or individual book in response. The 38 literature titles featured include: picture books such as Stellaluna and Have You Seen My Duckling?; chapter books such as How to Eat Fried Worms and The BFG classics such as Mr. Popper's Penguins and Make Way for Ducklings; both fiction and nonfiction selections. You can make double-hinged books, layered books, pull-tab books, pop-up books, pull-down books, flap books, and more. Each bookmaking project includes "After You Read" -- ideas for discussing each book. These suggestions serve as a prewriting lesson to the "Now Write!" activity. Each project has an original poem written to accompany it. 160 pages.
