We rated this book:


The teacher announces it is time to write. Oh, no! One of the children simply has no ideas and doesn’t know where to find any. She thinks and slumps and sulks and stares, but then something happens. A thought drops on her. That is followed by more and more thoughts. Words, pictures, funny phrases, nouns, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, and even happy memories begin to rain down on her. Topics and titles and questions swirl around her and big ideas flow by. She soaks it all in and as thoughts begin to form into ideas and ideas into sentences, she is finally ready to write.||Youngsters are often intimidated by having to write in class, and this sweet book will help open up creative young minds to what to write about. Rebecca Gardyn Livington has written a story that is sure to show kids ways to not let intimidation rule their writing lives. She does it with clever rhyming lines and wordplay. The illustrations by Kate Kronreif are just as clever as the text, with lots of words and phrases included in the illustrations. Back-matter includes a page of idea prompts and a glossary of writing terminology. This is a winner.
