I Wanna Iguana

by
Karen Kaufman Orloff

Have you ever wanted something REALLY, REALLY bad but your mom just wouldn't say yes? Alex did. He really, really wanted an iguana! He had lots of good reasons for getting one, too! Instead of begging and pleading, Alex did what smart kids do...he wrote letters telling WHY he wanted an iguana! Unfortunately, Mom wrote back with reasons why he shouldn't have one! Will Alex win the struggle?

What a great book for encouraging paired writing! Written as a series of letters between Alex and his mom, this book is the perfect springboard into persuasive writing.
