    Great book

    This book is a fantastic step by step approach that gets kids writing solid 5 paragraph essays. The topics are fun and interesting for students and really gets them motivated to write. By the time you have completed these essays the students find writing a paper a breeze. I would highly recommend this to anyone who teaches writing to 3rd through 6th graders.
