Author Study

This week in Reader’s Workshop, we are doing an author study.

We have collected lots of picture books written by a variety of authors.

We are reading the picture books to study each author’s style, themes and key ideas.

The authors we are focussing on include:

  • Margaret Wild
  • Mem Fox
  • Anthony Browne
  • Jackie French
  • Nick Bland
  • Alison Lester
  • Jeannie Baker
  • Julia Donaldson
  • Graham Base
  • Pamela Allen
  • Colin Thompson
  • John Burmingham

Students have set up a Google Sheet on their iPads to record their observations about each picture book they read.
