I am looking to build a mentor book list of picture books that have a mirror story structure.  Any suggestions?  Thanks, all!

Hi Laura,

What exactly do you mean by mirror story structure? Is that like in a counting book where you count 1-10, then 10-1?

Hi Jody,

I mean like in BOY and BOT, for example, where in the first have Boy takes care of Bot (whose power has turned off) and in the second half, Boy sleeps and Bot wakes up and takes care of boy in ways that mirror how Boy took care of him in the first half.

I included some examples of the mirror story structure in this PiBoIdMo post.

I haven't read it in a while so I don't remember the exact structure, but I think maybe BOOT AND SHOE by Marla Frazee?
