Gr. 5-8 Young gets readers started in a most creative introduction and keeps them focused on the writing process with ideas, explanations, and a great index that helps them to find the area they want to polish. She offers example after example of different ways to write and rewrite sentences, correct use of subject and verb agreement, assignment planning, bibliographies, writing blank verse, clauses, comma, couplets, rhyming patterns, research, editing, report writing, grammar, genre style-and just about any other questions young people may have on the writing process. The book is easy to comprehend, upbeat, and relevant. A must for library shelves and classrooms

Children's Literature - Sheree Van Vreede
This well-organized and well-written textbook teaches writers how to plan, produce, polish, and present their work. It is easy to follow as it thoroughly examines all of the mechanics of writing. Perhaps the only thing lacking is the inspiration. A good teaching tool for any classroom.
