A sophisticated picture book that introduces all facets ofbeing and becoming a writer. This book is brightly illustrated and uses boldcolors as well as interesting perspectives. Each page has a writing tactic,genre, or topic that starts with each letter of the alphabet and acorresponding short poem, like ¿T stands for Tall Tales, stories grand andbold, of lumberjacks, their pals and gals, of railroad men of old.¿ On the sideof each page there are interesting facts about writers of that particular genreor authors that used that writing tactic along with a quote of theirs.

You know this series. You¿ve read others like it from this publisher. You like the others? You will like this one.The author moves through the alphabet, hitting highlights of the writing process, expounding upon character and drafts and editing and genre and many more. The pictures are inviting and the text is clear.A sample:¿G begins the French word Genre, a way to group stories by kind.History, Mystery, Folktale, Myth.Each boasts rules to mind.Writers and readers classify stories by kind or genre, pronounced zhan-ruh. Each category has its own structure and set of rules. Genre choices for fiction include folktales, fantasy, and science fiction. Genre choices for nonfiction include essays, memoirs, and autobiographies.¿Children¿s comments:I showed this book to a group of eight first graders, all strong readers. They all liked the pictures and enjoyed browsing through the text, trying to anticipate the word for each letter and reading through the information about stories.

This is a valued book by my language arts faculty for the precise way the author pulled together the elements of literature to compile writing, reading, genres, etc. in one slim volume with interesting illustation that students are intrigued by. With all the emphasis on knowledge and testing today, students need to know these items and processes.
