Recommended Grades: 3-5

A nonfiction picture book all about pink animals.  Keating describes the animal, shares an interesting fact or story about each one, and provides scientific data for each animal. 

Lesson Idea: 

Mentor Text; Six Traits of Writing – Organization:  Pink is for Blobfish is a great mentor text for organization and structure.  Read aloud the book to students during a study of animals.  Have them create their own scientific notebooks to include scientific data such as the name of the animal, the species name, size, diet, habitat, and predators or threats.
