    Hi Amy:

    Here's a list of books that prompt questions before, during and after reading. The list is from the book "Strategies That Work." Authors are Stephanie Harvey and Anne Goudvis.

    "Amelia's Road" by Linda Altman
    A little girl, the child of migrant workers, wants a place she call home. Because many children lack background for this kind of life, they have many questions about it.

    "The Day of Ahmed's Secret" by Florence Parry Heide and J.D. Gilliland
    Throughout the day, Ahmed reminds the reader of his secret, only revealed at the end of the day and the end of the book.

    "Elizabeth" by Claire Nivola
    The true story of a little girl who has to leave her beloved doll behine when she is forced to flee Nazi Germany. Thoughtful questions about families leaving and their destinations abound.

    "How Come?" by Kathy Wollard
    This book with common scientific questions on many tipics inspires kids to ask their own as well as answer some in the process.

    "Why Is the Sky Blue?" by Sally Grindley
    The theme of teachers as learners comes through in this story of an old donkey and a young, very curious rabbit.

    The book list 7 other titles. If interested, I will post them for you. In addition, the book lists titles for visualizing, inferring, etc.

    Please excuse spelling error, in a hurry....
    Hope this helps. G.M.
