Persuasive Books!!

Oh, how much do I love to read books to my students to help them learn to write persuasively? More then anything! I love to teach persuasive writing! The book I am sharing today with my link up to Deanna Jump's book linky is Earrings!

This book is about a little girl who wants to have her ears pierced and her mom and dad say no! She does everything she can to persuade them to let her get these most beautiful earrings! 

This is a great book to teach persuasive writing! My kids love it and they love to write letters to their parents to persuade them to do or get something they have been told no about. We then address the letters and mail them to their family! This activity is one of my kiddos' favorite!

Judith Viorst is one of my favorite authors! She has written some awesome books! The Alexander books are others that she has written!
 I have embedded an interview video and a video reading of this book!
