Author Study: Cynthia Rylant

We have been studying the amazing author, Cynthia Rylant.  We learned about where she grew up and what inspires her stories.  We read and discussed many of her stories in class.  

Here are a few of our favorite books that we read during our author study unit!  Ask your child about these amazing stories!

If you would like to learn more about this author and some of her other books, you can take a look at her website by clicking the link below!

One of the fun activities that we did during out unit was to read a few of her series books. (Henry and Mudge, Poppleton)  After reading Poppleton, we made some inferences about how he was feeling in the story and listed the clues from the story that helped us to understand how he was feeling.  We created these Poppleton characters to display our inferences!
