Linking Novels to Picture Books

I found the perfect picture book to link to our current novel, Masters of Disaster, by Gary Paulsen! It is called, The Book of Bad Ideas, and it is hysterical! We wrote our own book of bad ideas using a set of blank books I got from Discount School Supply. They turned out really funny. Check out the pics!

My 4 year old, in the spirit of bad ideas, decided to draw in my book of bad ideas… go figure!  Check out the links to the book, blank journals ($15 for 24 of them), and the novel unit.  It is a great book, especially for those reluctant readers!

What is your favorite picture book to use during a novel unit?
