Editorial Reviews

Denise Perry Donavin
Kaye provides a bountiful supply of ways to ward off writer's block in young children. Her encouraging writing activities will help students in kindergarten through third grade enjoy the creative process and gradually master the skills needed for proficient, accurate authorship. She suggests starting kindergartners off with "wribbling" --a writing method combining scribbling and writing; then she moves on to story maps, followed by word games. Obviously a great tool for teachers looking for an alternative to work sheets, the book will also provide summertime family fun. Some of these ideas would make great traveling games--and why tell the kids they are valuable learning experiences as well.
