Buckner, Aimee DiMuzio
Primary Voices K-6, v7 n4 p7-11 Apr 1999
Describes how a fourth-grade teacher uses a favorite picture book (Julius Lester's "John Henry") to lead students into reading like writers, thus giving them the opportunity to make the connection between published writing and their own. Shows how working with a brief passage from the book does this. Offers a brief list of books to be mentored by. (SR)
