"I would recommend this book especially if you are struggling to figure out some creative ways to get your children to write. The format of his book will allow for young students as well as the older student in promoting the creative juices needed not only to write but to start thinking towards blogging."
Debbie Ingold, Children Grow, Children Explore, Children Learn
"Bryan Cohen did an amazing job, not only did he come up with 500 interesting, thought provoking questions, he also managed to word them in a way that leaves room for so many different answers, making sure that the child knows that there is no "wrong" way of answering the questions. I think (it's) a really brilliant book and I know we will be using this book for many years to come."
Miriam Abigail, Here We Are Together
"Whether you are a home educator like myself, or a school teacher, or parent, this is a very useful book. It can also provide just plain fun conversation between you & your child (to) get to know your child better, encourage them to use their imagination, and have fun; the possibilities are endless!"
Erika Bragdon, Musings from a Stay at Home Mom
From the Author
On a whim, I created three separate pages for first, second and third grade writing prompts. Prompts pages that kids could use if they were surfing around the Web or if their parents and teachers happened to find the site. The pages quickly became the most popular on my site and thus their popularity was the inspiration for this book.
The 500 writing prompts were incredibly fun for me to write (since I'm a big kid at heart) and I really hope that some fantastic teachers and parents try this out on their own big kids at heart. Of all the books I've written, this is the one that I think can truly make a positive impact on the world. Kids need to write and they need to be encouraged to build up that skill. Hopefully books like mine can make that more of a possibility.
To those parents, teachers and students out there, I wish you a hearty, "happy writing!"
