First-person/ Narrative

Catherine, Called Birdy - Karen Cushman

How cool would it be to hear the perspective of a teenager living in medieval England? I think it would be fascinating! This book would be great when pointing out a narrative in text or point-of-view in writing. After reading the book, the children could write their own short narrative but tell it from a medieval point-of-view. You can integrate reading and writing with this wonderful book! This book would be good for a 5th grade class.
