Little Red Writing
By Joan Holub
Follow along with Little Red Pencil as she takes her basket of 15 red words and sets out on a story. Along the way she got lost in the dark descriptive forest, squeezed out too many glue words and was rescued by "suddenly" and friends. In the middle of her story, something exciting happened and she got scared and threw words. She wound her way all through pencil school to Principal Granny's office where she found the grumpiest, growliest...well, you're just going to have to read it find out. This is a WONDERFUL book about building a story and how words work. This would also be good for older children who are having with writing.
