Title: Mentor Text - Paralell Stories
Post by: marla-lesage on January 11, 2017, 06:59 AM
I'm looking for Mentor texts where there are parallel stories but the 2nd story is not mentioned in the text & is not necessarily part of the same illustration (ie Jan Brett's The Turnip).

 If you can think of any where the main text is a concept story rather than plot or character driven would be a bonus.

Lois Ehlert's Barnyard Banter might fit. There's a chase happening in the background of all of the pictures. It's been a while since I read it though.
