    For our author study we made a lapbook on Cynthia Rylant. (search on yahoo for a description of a lapbook, they are quite neat!)
    We used the books:

    When I was Young in the Mountains: we used a Venn diagram to compare things that were used in the book, such as a johnny house to our bathroom, etc.

    Cookie Store Cat: we made a minibook describing what a cookie looks like, smells like and taste like.

    Tulip Sees America: we used a map of the US and colored in the states Tulip visited along with drawing a picture representing the state.

    The Old Woman Who Named Things: make a minibook with clipart of the teapot, clock, window and named them. (Tiny Tia Teapot, Clumsy Charlie Clock etc...)

    We also made a book about Cynthia Rylant, books she has written, some bio on her.

    It turn out great and was a lots of fun to do.
