Schema: fictional writing
This book is a great way to introduce creative writing. The girl in the story sees that there is going to be a story writing contest at local library. She decides to write, gets stumped, then asks members of her family about what to write that would make a good story. She rewrites and revises, then takes her mother’s suggestion and rewrites the story from her heart. The story shows the writing process in a short and entertaining manner.
Point of view could also be discussed as each member of her family tells her what to write about that would make a good story from each of their own POVs.
