Inspire Children to Write


Just wanted to pass along information about a new book that aims at inspiring children to write. Here’s what the website says: “An illuminating, first-of-its-kind resource to help parents foster a love of writing in their child’s life. New educational research reveals that writing is as fundamental to a child’s development as reading. But though there are books that promote literacy, no book guides parents in helping their child cultivate a love of writing. In this book, Pam Allyn, a nationally recognized educator and literacy expert, reminds us that writing is not only a key skill but also an essential part of self-discovery and critical to success later in life. Allyn offers the the five keys” to help kids WRITE-Word Power, Ritual, Independence, Time, and Environment-along with fun, imaginative prompts to inspire and empower children to put their thoughts on the page. A groundbreaking blueprint for developing every child’s abilities, Your Child’s Writing Life teaches parents how to give a gift that will last a lifetime.”

  1. Please make all of your books paperback. We're starting a collection and want to be able to collect them all. Thanks so much. Wonderful books!!!!

  2. My trade books such as How to Raise a Dinosaur, and An Eye for Color, are in hardback, but my Night Befores are released as paperbacks. Check Amazon for Library or School Binding editions. Other companies have turned my books into hardbacks so you can get a few titles in more durable covers.

  3. thank you for your recent comment on my blog! i was flattered you would take the time to offer encouraging words to us mothers starting this kindergarten journey for the 1st time.i will continue to enjoy your books and recommend them. thanks again. jennifer
