Your Friend, John50 Creative Sparks to Encourage WritingBy John JacobsonGrades 3-6
Reading and writing together is a great way to make friends, learn about yourself and others, and explore new things. This collection of fifty letters to young readers from John Jacobson is filled with thoughts and creative writing sparks that will help you do just that. After each letter, John gives a "starter" question, phrase or suggestion, and you take it from there. Use these sparks to express your thoughts, ask some questions, and dream a little! Writing needs to be practiced just like making music, and you will become a better writer the more you do it. It also helps sort out your own thoughts and ideas when you write them down. Connect with John on the enclosed Enhanced CD as he reads his letters to you for a more personal touch. The CD also includes PDFs of the letters and a special designed journal page for each of the 50 Starter Phrases, so you can create your own journal.
