I used this book in homeschooling my children. So many children struggle with writing and getting their ideas down on paper. I really like this book because with her maps and models they were able to break their ideas down step by step and it made it so easy for them to write.
Her instructions are clear and very helpful. I especially liked the printable "map' in the back the children could use. A great book.
