Qualities of a Writer

Today is the day that I will be working with teachers on developing Writer's Notebooks and I am very excited!!  Of course, we will be looking at some mentor texts and I thought I would share one of my new favorites:

Library Mouse is really named Sam and at night he sneaks out of his home behind the reference materials to read, read, read.  Inspired - he decides to become an author and writes and illustrates his first book: Squeak! A Mouse's Life.  His books are discovered by the library patrons who eat them up (sorry - couldn't resist!) and the librarian soon invites him to "Meet the Author Day."  I won't tell  you the rest - but will tell you that it warms my little writing teacher heart.
