    Click Clack Moo works as well, though it's more about demands and negotiation. I Wanna Iguana is my favourite. I use it with my grade 8 kids! They had a great time identifying the persuasive tactic used by the child, and the counter arguments used by the mother. :) But for younger kids, it's really easy for them to identify with it.

    My son is in grade 1 at the school where I teach (we do a whole school writing plan, so we all do persuasive at the same time). Their introduction was I Wanna Iguana, and then they had to brainstorm ideas for how to convince their parents that they should be able to choose their own bedtime. It was hilarious when my son came home and tried to persuade me with his "convincing arguments" (his words).
