Peters, L.W. (1990). The Sun, the Wind, and the Rain.New York: Henry Holt.
This book compares the formation and destruction of a mountain over millions of years to the building (and rebuilding) of a sand "mountain" by a child during a day at the beach. The book uses a very consistent, explicit compare-contrast text structure. At each stage of the development and destruction of the real mountain and the building of the sand mountain, the book presents side-by-side comparisons of the two mountains and the effect that time and weather have on each. This book could be used as a read-aloud to demonstrate compare-contrast text structure for very young ELL students, or as a guided reading text with ELL students in the upperprimary grades.
