Nana in the City by Lauren Castillo
Paintings by Lauren Castillo
Publisher: Clarion Books
Okay, I am a little biased about this book since I am a Nana! But it is good mentor text for ideas.
A boy goes to see his nana in the city...but he does not like the city.
It is loud...
Then Nana gives him a red cape...
And the city is loud...but in a good way!
And it is not so scary...
In fact, it is extraordinary!
Even though they are just short sentences, ideas can spring forth from them. If it is loud, there is a story for loud that is annoying with the traffic, or exciting with music and dancers.
