Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Paula McMillen
An inviting and colorful layout complements encouraging text in this volume of the "Write Your Own" series, which provides a good starting point both for budding writers and for teachers helping their students learn to write. A sequence of steps, examples, tips, and strategies are offered to facilitate creating a mythical tale. A colored bar along the bottom of every page keeps the reader/teacher oriented to the stages of the process. Examples and comments from established children's authors are set out from the instructional narrative in colored boxes. There are colored photographs of children in the writing process, mythical places, images, and artworks throughout, and an abundance of supplementary material at the end includes a glossary, reading, and web site suggestions, clear photo credits, and an index. The sections on fact checking could have been significantly improved by making distinctions between the Internet and libraries as sources of authoritative information, and would have been the ideal place to introduce information literacy related concepts such as critical evaluation of sources. Experienced writers will recognize that the process is never as linear as presented here, but highlighting key aspects such as idea generation, scene, and character development, point of view, plot line, and language is still helpful, and the author makes it seem as though anyone can do it. Reviewer: Paula McMillen, Ph.D.
