Book of the Week: Animal Grossapedia

Educators often ask me which of my books would work best in their classroom. So this year, I’ve decided to feature a book each week and highlight related teaching materials and strategies.

Because Animal Grossapedia features a strong, sassy voice, it’s a perfect choice for lessons that focus on why voice is an important element of nonfiction writing. I have paired this book with When Rain Falls and Under the Snow, which have a wondrous, lyrical voice to create a Voice Choice mini-lesson  (scroll to bottom of page) that students love.
