Writing Builders is a six-book set ideal for children in grades 2-4. Each volume teaches young people about the basics of different types of writing. In the increasingly interconnected world, good writing and communication skills are more valuable than ever; these user-friendly guides supplement their simple instructions with colorful, hand-drawn pictures of fellow children undertaking writing projects. The story native of children discovering how to write interleaved with basic steps and handy tips makes the Writing Builders series easy to pick up and learn from. "Are you ready to practice your speeches?" asked Mr. Boscombe. "Practicing will make you more comfortable with your speech. You'll do a better job when you go in front of your audience. Try not to read your note cards. Just glance at them." The Writing Builders series is an absolutely invaluable addition to grade school children's libraries!
