Excellent! A story that shows how we can teach by asking questions (wondering) with children to help them draw their own conclusions. ( )

This book would be great for making real life connections. Applying this to life and how we know the habitats of animals.

This book can be used when trying to get your readers to get a mental snapshot of what is happening when they read. Readers can use graphic organizers to write what they think the room will look like, or draw it, based on the writers description. Then readers can compare their predictions with the pictures.

The salamander room is a book that can be used when trying to teach students about the importance of visualization while reading a book. This means that you are teaching the students to read to understand the words on the page, not to just look at the pictures. This is a good book to use for all grades, especially if they are having trouble with visualization. This can be read and then the students can have a grand conversation about it.
