The DVD is available under the Movies and TV section. The Write to Read Program is an educational kit consisting of a book of eleven fictional stories written and illustrated by children with a separately ordered DVD of the authors reading and acting out some aspects of their stories. This program is designed to serve as a model to enable children to develop their own literacy, reading skills, creativity, and conceptual style. The stories in the Write to Read book and DVD all focus on the various hobbies of each writer. The hobbies include: ballet, cooking, singing, golfing, ice-skating, snowboarding, rowing, surfing, ice-dancing, drawing, and weightlifting. The Write to Read project encourages children to create stories that are related to their own hobby and to life experiences. Children of all ages will benefit from the Write to Read book and DVD. At the end of the book, Write to Read provides a journal book for the child to create, write, and illustrate their own story. The Write to Read book and DVD will become a treasured keepsake for the entire family.

What a wonderful idea this book/DVD kit is! My kids, ages 6 and 10 were drawn in and mesmerized with the DVD and book, too. The kids in the DVD are dressed in character to go along with their individual stories as they read their story to you on the DVD. This aspect just adds an extra element to reading a book for a child and definitely makes reading more desirable for a child. My kids love it and watch over and over which is inspiring them to be little writers. As a mom, this is just fantastic!! I highly recommend this to those who want to give budding writers inspiration, to those who hate to read and everyone in between. Definitely an excellent tool for tutors, schools and home. Give it as a gift!!!!
