Mentor Texts Celebrating Latino Culture

In Dream Wakers, author and educator Ruth Culham focuses her love of children’s literature—and her decades of work developing the six traits of writing—on books that celebrate Latino life and culture. She presents a wide variety of ideas to teach writing using some of the richest and most beautiful children’s books available. Dream Wakers provides an annotated list of more than 120 books with do-it-today lesson ideas for teaching the traits of writing—Ideas, Organization, Voice, Word Choice, Sentence Fluency, and Conventions. More than half of the books listed are bilingual or available as English or Spanish editions. Dream Wakers also includes 11 original, insightful essays by renowned children’s authors of some of the featured books. A reference chart helps teachers locate books quickly by trait, genre, language, and author/publisher information. Teachers can view the contents and preview the entire book online.
