From searching for inspiration to creating a setting, characters, a problem, and a solution, readers will delight in following a young girl as she creates a thrilling story full of imagination. The colorful illustrations highlight each of the girl’s ideas drawing the reader in while the text lays out each step in a logical way that will get children excited to start writing their own stories!
I love this book so much that I bought a second copy to donate to my children’s school library.
