Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I have another book by this author and my children love them. We use these for writing practice in our homeschool environment. We use a prepared curriculum - but I do this type of stuff for supplementation. I highly recommend her books.
The book would be good for a child that already likes to write. It didn't convince my 7 year old that writing is fun. Maybe we will give it another try next year.
A fun resource to stretch your creative writing skills. I found a few of the activities a bit repetitive or difficult to understand the purpose of, thus the 4 star rating. Overall, though, I recommend this to anyone wanting to build creative writing skills, especially in poetry and free writing.
