    The best way to introduce it would be to use picture books that you can read with them. Start off by doing a graphic organizer (like a web or KWL chart) with that genre. Let the kids do an anticipation guide where they write what they think that genre or particular book would be like, then read the book. After reading, let them check their predictions with the book. Then make a separate chart for them to write notes on each genre as you do them. On that same chart, you can give some examples of books on their reading level that are that genre. It would help to have samples of those books (go to the library to get some) and read the backs to them. Should peak their interest!
