How The Crayons Saved the Rainbow and Rainbow Ready-To-Read are wonderful as coupled books. How the Crayons Saved the Rainbow is a fantastic story about a forgotten box of crayons saving the world from becoming a colorless place. It is super cute and focuses on all the wonderful colors. Rainbow is part of a Read-to-Read weather series. This book is super short and easy to read for young learners. The text feature I would focus on in this nonfiction book is the realistic illustrations. Many kindergartners think if the book has a photograph, it has to be real or fiction and vise versa with nonfiction. I would use this book as an example of nonfiction, but that has illustrations drawn by the illustrator, which is less common, but an important aspect that students need to be familiar. I would compare the illustrations in both books to show students the similarities between the two books. This would, of course, need to be followed up and focused on throughout the year, but would be a wonderful intro into what makes a book fiction or nonfiction. This would need to be done later in the year when students are more familiar with a variety of text styles. I like the idea of starting this lesson off by creating a kwl chart. There is an awesome free kwl chart generator that I use from www.readwritethink.org. It would start students off thinking about the different text features of nonfiction books. Then, after reading Rainbow, going back to the chart and either agreeing with what students said or correcting it, depending on what they said about the illustrations of nonfiction books.
