Friday Favorites-Mentor Texts-Diary/Letter formatI'd been looking for mentor texts written in the form of letters or diary entries when I stumbled upon these jewels. They each use the unique format to give their characters a strong voice. Charmingly illustrated, they are fun reads that might work well with writing activities at home or in school. The two diaries have also inspired sequels.
