Mentor Text Link Up! Happy International Children's Book Day!

Product Details
I am linking up with Collaboration Cuties for their Mentor Text linky!  I love children's books and what a better day to do it than on International Children's book day?
I love this book!  Of course, I love pretty much anything by Chris Van Allsberg!  It is about a farmer who accidentally hits a man with his truck.  He brings the man home.  The Stranger doesn't speak, but enjoys his time with the farmer and his family.  The strange thing is, summer seems to be going on for n extra long time!  

I cheated a little on the One Word part, but that is what comes to mind when I think about this book!  When I use this book we always do a question web.  The book never says who the stranger is, so we have to infer who he is using clues from the text.  I have included a very simple question web freebie to go with it!  Happy Questioning!

  2. You're welcome! I hope you find it useful!

  3. Thank you so much for linking up!!! I like Chris Van Allsburg, although he can be a little strange! I read Wretched Stone every year. It's an interesting book to say the least!! This kids find it fascinating.

    I love that you use if for questioning! I can only imagine that CVA does evoke many questions from his stories for the reader!

    I'm so glad you linked up! I hope you'll be back next week! I love learning about books!!!
