    Jan Brett is my favorite author to do an author study on. So many of her books take place around the holidays so you are at the perfect time of year. First of all, she has the most amazing website www.janbrett.com. I could spend all day there. It is filled with ideas for all of her books. You can find out everything you need to know there.

    I concentrate on her illustrations and her use of borders. The borders often tell their own stories. Her website also includes inside info on her books. Depending on how technology savy your school is, her site includes web videos of her which are really neat. Your students can do their own search on her site and email her. You can also email her and request a teacher pack, it may not come in time, but it is great to have.

    I read a different story everyday during read aloud time. If there is a story I want to work on certain concepts with, I may read it a few times. Depending on the grade level you can do anything from coloring sheets to illustrating thier own stories with borders. She is an amazing author and illustrator, I am sure you will have a great time! Good luck and have fun!
