Karl and Carolina Uncover the Parts of a Book

Recommended Grades: 2-5

Karl and Carolina love to learn.  In Karl and Carolina Uncover the Parts of a Book (In the Library), children will learn about the parts of a book right beside the characters. 

Lesson Idea:

Text Features: Read aloud Karl and Carolina Uncover the Parts of a Book (In the Library) and discuss the parts of a book.  Discuss how the author combined elements of fiction and nonfiction to tell the story.  Read aloud this book at the beginning of a unit on nonfiction text features to introduce a few text features.  Or read it aloud to review a few features.  The author does a great job defining the features and the illustrations are colorful and lively.  After reading aloud this book as an introduction, create a class checklist of features that can be displayed permanently.  As students locate new features in their reading, they can add to the list.
