      Cynthia Rylant's The Relatives Came, a children's story that depicts the goings-on of family get-togethers -- the excitement and feasting, hugging and catching up on stories. One of my favorite works of children's literature.

    Teach Mentor Texts

    What a display! Kids illustrate a cover and write a summary of their favorite book. Each child could update as he/she finds a new favorite book! (Free do-it-yourself idea.)
