About The Write Your Own Series:
Some children dream of becoming writers. Those are the ones that make homeschooling a cakewalk. But not all children like to write. And even if your child is heading in a direction that seems to be more vocational and less academic, he still needs to master at least rudimentary writing skills.
Give Them Something They Want To Write About
A fairly painless way to accomplish this is to give him something he wants to write about. What are his reading patterns? Does he read mysteries or is he a fan of historical fiction? Maybe the best story is his own story and he would rather write his own autobiography. No matter the genre, the Write Your Own series is devoted to helping beginning writers succeed.
