    Hey all,

    I'm looking for read aloud suggestions that would show authors using adjectives and descriptive writing. Granted, many read alouds would display these features but I'm looking for those that would be clear, strong, and/or interesting examples.

    Thanks!

    Matt

    Have you ever heard of a book called Hoops by Robert Burleigh? It is beautifully written with interesting language choices and strong adjectives. A great addition to any teacher's library and one of my touchstone texts.
