From our Lead Curator, Marie Bouteillon: "When choosing mentor texts, I look for books where authors show students the ‘writing moves’ they make. Whether it’s defining academic terms, using text features, asking readers questions or providing examples, student writers will be inspired when seeing writing traits come to life."

Mi vida de abeja

$ 20.25
My life as a bee tells the story of bees over the course of a year, from spring to spring. A simple text, showing the different stages of nectar gathering and honey making, but with the cadence of a song of vibrant phrases, reflecting the hectic and incessant rhythm of the hive's activity. Isabelle Arsenault's illustrations, a combination of ink, gouache, graphite and colored pencil, are energetic and joyful. They alternate landscapes -represented in an impressionistic manner- with cartoon-style drawings -of bees with big eyes and smiling faces, but with a sharp nose reminiscent of the sting they hide in their abdomen-. A work that allows readers to follow the erratic flight of the bees among the flowers, and to enter, as guests of honor, into the hive, the small honey factory.
