Writing: A Fact and Fun Book
The written word is the most powerful tool there is. Writing: A Fact and Fun Book traces the development of writing from pictograms on cave walls to Gutenberg's revolutionary printing press, to the computer. Kids can experiment with their own writing materials, make quill pens or paper, and then learn the tricks of the writing trade with advice from famous authors such as E.B. White.
