Author Study - Julia Donaldson

We have started a new unit of work focussing on one author. We have been reading and talking about books by Julia Donaldson. We spent a lesson reading a couple of her books with a partner and finding out what her 'style' was. We discovered that she writes using rhyme, there is a rhythm to her writing as it is almost like a poem but a long one and she also uses repetition of key lines and phrases so that the reader can join in with the story.
