My library mouse series has inspired countless children around the world to try writing their own original stories. Teachers use my books to help kids work on their writing skills, while using their imaginations to build creativity.
In my visits to schools across the country I’ve seen that children are empowered by making up characters and stories, and I’ve been moved by the pride young writers have in sharing their books with their peers, teachers and parents.
Now I’ve written and illustrated new book, which I am offering here as a free download, Library Mouse and Sam and Sarah take us on an A-Z tour through the world of writing, exploring many concepts, themes and some important vocabulary. Teachers in first through third grade will find this material useful as a classroom aid, and included with the book are suggestions for ways to incorporate the information into reading and writing programs.
