"A fantastic book for anyone struggling with a reluctant writer…"
This is an excellent step by step guide, on how you can teach your child creative writing. My son (10) really enjoyed reading the stories and this book has inspired him to start writing - where every other book failed.
It teaches children the skills needed for writing excellent stories; including planning a story, structuring a story with a beginning, middle and end, building up characters and settings, ideas for making a story more interesting i.e. using different sentence types and vocabulary, tips on spelling, punctuation and grammar and much more. There are many ideas for story writing and inspiration to get a child started with writing. I especially liked the model answers. I found it worked well when my child read the model stories through a few times and then went away and wrote his own. I would thoroughly recommend it to any parent struggling with a reluctant writer! My son's writing has definitely improved after working through the exercises in this book. I will definitely be purchasing the other books in the series.Read moreLess
