I love her idea of using children's books to teach children how to analyze literature. I downloaded the mp3 of her husband's conference session about learning how to ask the right questions. I highly recommend listening to it before you begin with the readers.

What questions do you have Swimmermom? I can look through it later if you like.

I do not remember reading any discussion on these. However, I do recall a delightful thread where Nan in Mass and elegantlion discussed utilizing children's books for lit analysis with older students. I was curious to see if anyone had used The Ready Reader.
That was more info than you all needed to know. I have no idea why I feel the need to defend myself when I tell you all I have yet another new language arts component.

We've also used the delightful picture book, Two Eggs, Please. The entire book has about 25 words. We had such a delightful time discussing the book and would have never gotten as much out of it if we didn't have Adam's lit analysis materials on this story.

Thank you so much for reminding me about this. I can use them for ds11. I was just about to start a thread asking what to do!!!
I also love Deconstructing Penguins. Remember those discussions?

i'm guessing it is not totally complete b/c they give you up to page 8 and the next story is on page 14.
