Booklist - Ann Kelley

Everybody has something to say, and we all need a little help finding the right way to express ourselves. The You Can Write series, targeted toward the youngest would-be writers, offers tips on how to channel thoughts and feelings into written words. You Can Write Cool Poems alternates practical advice with opportunities for practice. Topics include the importance of details in a poem (“How does [a cat] look? Smell? Sound?”); how to effectively repeat sounds; what an active verb is; and constructing free-verse poems. You Can Write Great Letters and E-mails (yes, people still write letters!) follows the same format and looks at correspondence in terms of tone (formal or friendly?) and technique (closing and signature) while offering up an exercise for each topic (for instance, when writing a formal letter, first state who you are). And if you don’t know what to write about, don’t worry?the book offers suggested subjects. Short additional “writing tips” appear throughout. Both titles are visually interesting, with plenty of color, bright photographs, and images of kids engaged in creative endeavors. It’s crucial to make writing fun for the early-elementary-age set, and this series, strong in both presentation and content, is sure to inspire the scribe within.
