An extremely well-done guide. Heck, even an adult would benefit from this clear, straightforward guide.” BookLoons Reviews

“A most welcome source for educators and children – both inspiring and practical. Her enthusiasm for teaching young people to write will grab the attention of teachers, librarians, and kids themselves. Teachers need her straightfoward text. Librarians can recommend it whole-heartedly to the public. And kids will grow in their writing skills enthusiastically. Buy two copies! One for yourself, and one to share!”
