    seeing the author can tell you what each
    character knows, feels, thinks, and says.

  • Emotions can be expressed by a characters
    actions and words.
  • An author can help readers see a characters
    emotions through what a character says or does.

Read AloudRudolph Is Tired of the City
  • These buildings are too close to me.
  • Id like to PUSH away.
  • Id like to live in the country.
  • And spread my arms all day.
  • Id like to spread my breath out, too-
  • As farmers sons and daughters do.
  • Id tend the cows and chickens.
  • Id do the other chores.
  • Then, all the hours left Id go
  • A-SPREADING out-of-doors.

Read AloudChildhood Country
  • When I was a child in the city
  • Tall buildings made everything dark
  • And I longed to live on a meadow
  • As sunny as Central Park.
  • Now I live in the country
  • Where flowers and trees abound.
  • And squirrels, chipmunks, and foxes
  • Scurry across the ground.
  • And hidden by leaves in the treetops
  • An occasional glimmer of wing
  • Is followed by magical music
  • As the warblers begin to sing.

The lawns are aglow with roses, They sky is the
bluest of blue, And the suns rays enter my
window As if to say, How do you do. And yet,
though I love the country And find every part so
pretty, I long for the yard of my childhood In
the heart of New York City.
