"Back and Forth" is a book that is great for guided reading because it follows a pattern. The images allow the reader to use picture cues to figure out what the text says if he or she can not read it. The book can be considered a scientific text because it contains descriptive attributes of things that move back and forth. This book should be used with younger students because it is not very syntactically complex.

This book is very similar to "Push and Pull" by: Lola M Schaefer. The movement of the text is the same. It is a great guided reading text because it allows for teacher guidance and everyday engagement. This book is relatable to students because of the images that include movement. This book is a great guided reading text for students that are beginning reading due to its syntactic nature. ( )

This book follows a pattern where every sentence ends in "back and forth". Readers can use picture cues to see what the sentence is describing and then pick up on the pattern. It is a very simple pattern so can be used with emergent readers through choral reading.

"Back and Forth" features the ways things move and teaches vocabulary words related to movement. It uses real world photographs which help students make real world connections from the book. This book is for new readers and uses simple sentences for them to understand. I would reccomend this book for a Kindergarten or First grade classroom. ( )
