Author's Purpose
Did you know?
Everyone
should
have a pet. Pets are very loving and affectionate. They help children learn responsibility. Pets give you unconditional love.
Having a pet is a

wonderful

experience.
Example:
What is the author trying to have you
believe
?
Example:
There are three lights on a traffic light. The top light is red and that means stop. The middle light is yellow and that means caution. The bottom light is green and that means go.
What does the author want you to

learn?
Example:
If you asked the kids and the teachers at Lincoln Elementary School to make three lists--all the really bad kids, all the really smart kids, and all the really good kids--Nick Allen would not be on any of them. Nick deserved a list all his own, and everyone knew it. Was Nick a troublemaker? Hard to say. One thing's for sure: Nick Allen had plenty of ideas, and he knew what to do with them.
