I am a teacher from Colombia (South America), And I am so happy to have this book because I definitively believe that writing and reading can be fun and joyfully learned. Thatīs what this book is about. you can find great ideas to make your home a cozy and perfect place where your child loves to write.
The only thing about this book is that there is a statement that i donīt agree at all, it is like is just for talent children. I, as a teacher believe that every kid can be a good writer and those ideas can work for anyone. We (parents and teachers) can be the guide and help them in order to develop that talent. How ever I understand that this is a parentsī guide.
