Friday Favorites- Mentor Texts- Cumulative Format

These are one of my favorite formats. The repetition makes it great for early readers, or even non-readers will learn the sequence. God examples are There was an Old Lady who Swallowed a Fly and The House that Jack Built. The texts "accumulate" as the build toward the end.

The Full Moon at the Napping House; Hardcover; Author - Audrey Wood
 Full Moon at Napping House by Audrey Wood, Illus. by Don Wood
This is a lovely sequel to Napping House.

In a Village by the Sea by Muon Van, Illus. by April Chu
This quiet, stunningly illustrated book is more of a circular text, building on itself and making it predictable for young listeners.
