which had the idea of comparing The Bicycle Book with Sally Jean, The Bicycle Queen. I really loved the idea of taking the two books and comparing them even though one is fiction and one is nonfiction.
I didn't have either of those books, but I did have Owls by Gail Gibbons and Owl Moon by Jane Yolen.
BONUS: We had read both of these books as a class!
Today, I showed them both books and we discussed what we noticed and how they were different. I was seeing a small glimmer of light!
Tomorrow, we are going to get into teams and look at multiple books so we can make a chart like this:

I found a ton of great anchor charts on Pinterest...I can't wait to make ours tomorrow!
Hooray for internet teamwork!
