School Library Journal - How to Write

Gr 3"“5"”Each book is composed of six chapters that take children through the process of creating a specific type of nonfiction writing. Examples, suggestions, and activities reinforce each skill. Report gives examples of note cards and a KWL chart filled in. However, it seems a little odd to indicate “a pencil” under materials needed. There are checklists and things to remember as well as pointers on what not to do. “For More Information” resources are very basic"”one or two book titles and one or two websites. Illustrations alternate between the antics of a cute cartoon mouse and childlike pencil drawings, appropriate for second or third graders, and photos of actual students, some of whom seem a bit too old for the art and text. These books won’t be the impetus for creating especially interesting reports, but for kids who just need the basics, they will be helpful. Susan Lissim, Dwight School, New York City
