Getting kids writing is a super resource. Mary Leonhardt knows writing, knows kids and loves both. It shows with every word she shares with her readers.

As an avid writer and homeschooling parent, I was very drawn to the title of this book. I believed that it would give me wonderful ideas for projects with which I could motivate my young writers. Instead, the book tells me such things as "Provide plenty of writing materials." and "Write for pleasure yourself." This is as basic is BREATHING.... Any parent with a third grade education knows that you must have writing materials available. And, of course, a child who sees a parent writing will have more of an interest in doing so. This book DOES NOT provide ideas for motivating young writers. It tells the parents basic, ...facts that they SHOULD already know. I do not recommend this book to anyone.
