I loved this textbook... if you can even call it a textbook. Instead of reading pages and pages of a textbook that has no interactive pictures, this book breaks down the stages of writing with many many illustrations. However, the illustrations are samples of different children's writing entries. I learned so much from this book and I recommend it to every teacher and/or parent!

This book is great to help with looking at children's writing. This book has actual real examples throughout it. I can use this book during my teaching because it would be a great example since it is full of ideas.
