That is Not a Good Idea! by Mo Willems

Recommended Grades: 3-5

One day a very hungry fox meets a very plump goose.  A dinner invitation is offered.  Will dinner go as planned? Or do the plans involve a secret ingredient? 

Lesson Idea:  

Mentor Text, Organization: Read aloud That Is Not a Good Idea! and discuss the craft of the text.  How did Willems craft the story?  What do readers notice?  Point out the surprise ending and use this book as a mentor text for organization when teaching the Six Traits of Writing.
