The Write Stuff Adventure Jul 1, 2000
This is a wonderful answer for home schooling parents who want to give their children complete and varied writing assignments. Includes all kinds of writing from fun little games to complete essays. This author has proven his method by using it first with his own grandchildren who were home schooled. It is concise and does not include too much information like most writing guides. Excellent!
