This book was a gift from my mom, via Columbia University (where we both studied two summers ago). It's a professional read (can you tell I'm getting ready for a new academic year?)about early writing instruction (pre-K and K).
I loved the ideas for creating books with my 3 year old I got from this book. She sees herself as a writer already. I love the focus Ray puts on nurturing that idea of competence in our youngest writers.

I am not a teacher and read this just to get ideas about helping my pre-schoolers to gain skills that will help them to be writers as they get older.
This wasn't anything earth-shattering that I didn't already believe in, but it's a nice confirmation of practices I like to use in writing instruction.
Important book for anyone, teacher or caregiver, who wants to nuture the youngest writers among us.

This book has interesting information for our KG1 and KG2 teachers. Jane picked in up in London.
Susan Kennedy
Wonderful to be reminded that writing starts well before we can actualy "write" words.
Jenny Hale
The insight Katie Wood Ray offers regarding early writing is phenomenal!

Loved it! Very helpful for Writers Workshop!
Laura Gorman
