<div>"Expertly written in a conversational style, employing numerous illustrative anecdotes, and thoroughly 'user-friendly,' Mentor Texts should be considered mandatory reading for anyone charged with the responsibility of teaching writing at the elementary school level." --Midwest Book Review
Mentor Texts:Teaching Writing Through Children's Literature by Lynne R. Dorfman and Rose Cappelli is so much more than I expected. It is loaded with specific examples of styles and strategies that students can borrow from favorite authors as the students build their own style of writing. The index at the end is a goldmine of resources. No more scouring the Internet for ideas! For me, the book is also a refresher course on children's literature that is helping me bring a broader selection of books to my students. I was using the ideas in this book in my writing lessons before I was even halfway through it!
--Linda Solaya, Third Grade Teacher
