Nonfiction Mentor Texts

A list of books identified in the text, Nonfiction Mentor Texts by Dorfman & Capelli (2009), as well as other booklists, that are available in the Curriculum Materials Center of the David & Lorraine Cheng Library of William Paterson University. In addition to listing the chapter(s) in which each title is cited, Lexile scores have been added to aid in selecting appropriate titles.

Databases for Teachers and Librarians

These online subscription databases are useful for finding children's literature. The Cheng Library will not have many of the titles listed. You may need to use your local public or school library.
