This is a two week unit that uncovers Mo Willems's author's craft. The first week is full of Mo Willems's pigeon books and the second week includes Knuffle Bunny and Piggie and Elephant books. The kids absolutely love this unit because they get to learn to draw the pigeon from the Mo WIllems app and they learn to write like him using speech bubbles, motion lines, and BOLD WORDS.
What is Mo Willem's author’s craft and how can I write like him?
