This is a great book for kids or for teaching kids the basics of writing stories. Each chapter contains a lesson on a different part of writing, such as plot, imagery, setting, characterization,… And each lesson is laid out clearly and in language that a middle grade child will easily understand. There are clear examples throughout to illustrate the points being made, along with helpful exercises to bring the lessons into practice. I really like this book — there is enough information so that it’s not fluffy, but not so much so as to be intimidating. It will be a useful reference for kids, teachers, and parents alike. I would recommend this book to kids looking to learn more about writing or who are wanting to take their writing to the next level.
