Cats have secrets they keep in a book. But, if you are anything other than a cat, and especially a mouse, you should not be reading it! What happens when the cats test the readers to see if they meet the criteria to read the book?
Read Aloud/Model Text: This is a fun read aloud for kids in the primary grades. It also makes a good model text for writing dialogue. The author uses bubbles to indicate when a cat is speaking. Cat Secrets can also be used as a model for “talking directly to the reader.” Both author’s craft techniques can be modeled for students in writer’s workshop.
