Product Overview

Publication Date: 04/01/2006
Story Starters is designed to awaken the dormant writer in your child. It has just the right ingredients to inspire even the reluctant writer or the student who has experienced discouragement. A story starter, along with its accompanying picture, provides a very buoyant jumpstart for creative composition. The student is encouraged to write freely, with zest, with boldness and far more abandon than he may be used to, because he is unencumbered by the usual constraints of more formal exercises. With Story Starters children write like they've never written before. Often a budding writer is suspended in the middle of an intense situation, and then is faced with the question: What happens next? This is his cue to expand and embellish the story as much as he wants.

The action-packed stories and dramatic 19th century illustrations were designed especially to appeal to boys. Other stories are calmer. This is a big book only because choices are plentiful. Thumb through the pages to pick ones you like. Whether calm or exciting, each story reflects Biblical virtues. The characters are uncommonly brave and kind-hearted, gracious and generous, variously demonstrating respect for elders, patience, fortitude, or quick wits. Grades 4-12.
