BOOK -TASTING and TEXT-TASTING: To run book-tasting or text-tasting events, you’ll need several books, short stories or articles and menu covers with task sheet inserts. Students 1) hunt for author’s craft techniques 2) get exposure to multi-genre texts, and 3) discuss why they think authors use specific formats to deliver information. Secure multiple pages with rubber bands to create handy reference booklets that students will use throughout the year. #strugglingreaders (available at TpT)

Imagine a prologue that opens with a third grader telling her mother, "I want to go to jail." In the author's note Cynthia Levinson writes, "History is facts. History is also stories." Through the stories of Audrey Hendricks, Washington Booker, James Stewart and Arnetta Streeter, the Birmingham Children's March is pieced together. Photographs, quotes and primary documents like segregation ordinances bring this beautiful book to life.

We treasure this book on many levels. Not only does it have the primary document language, it also provides a kid-friendly translation with vocabulary support for each amendment. There is a section about why kids should care about the Bill of Rights as well as a final chapter on the story behind it. Other books in this "What It Really Means" series include the I Have a Dream speech, the Pledge of Allegiance and more.

If the cover of this book reminds you of 14 Cows for America, that's because illustrator Thomas Gonzalez has created another visual delight. Non-violent protest is the focus of this picture book with actual quotes and facts from Gandhi's march. The verse itself has the rhythm of a march and students will likely think about the role and importance of salt in a whole new way.
