Download Kristina's Favorite Picture Books for Teaching the 6 Traits
Many teachers choose to introduce each of the 6 Traits by reading a text that exemplifies the trait. Students can see the trait in action within such mentor text.

Picture books are a great option. The text is short (which is important for a mini-lesson) and engaging for students–even those in middle school and high school!

Most teachers read a different book to represent each trait. But, if you are looking for a single title that demonstrates all 6 Traits, look for the * at the end of each title/author. These are texts that would work for all 6 Traits. (Download a PDF version of Kristina’s 6-Traits Picture Book Recommendations.)
