An illuminating, first-of-its-kind resource to help parents foster a love of writing in their child's life.

New educational research reveals that writing is as fundamental to a child's development as reading. But though there are books that promote literacy, no book guides parents in helping their child cultivate a love of writing. In this book, Pam Allyn, a nationally recognized educator and literacy expert, reminds us that writing is not only a key skill but also an essential part of self-discovery and critical to success later in life. Allyn offers the "the five keys" to help kids WRITE-Word Power, Ritual, Independence, Time, and Environment-along with fun, imaginative prompts to inspire and empower children to put their thoughts on the page.

A groundbreaking blueprint for developing every child's abilities, Your Child's Writing Life teaches parents how to give a gift that will last a lifetime.

Baker & Taylor
"Both practical and inspiring, Allyn offers the Five Keys to help kids WRITE: Word power, Ritual, Independence, Time, and Environment, as well as the Writer's Ladder, which helps parents understand and guide their child's writing through each developmentstage. But at the heart of the book are Allyn's imaginative prompts, which will ignite the fire of writing in any child."--P. [4] of cover.
