WORD AFTER WORD AFTER WORD by Patricia MacLachlan
Patricia Maclachlan's newest book WORD AFTER WORD AFTER WORD could make anyone a writer. A famous writer visits a classroom for 6 weeks and answers questions, shares her writing, share others writing and turns the class of 4th graders into writers. The students learn to share experiences and live with a dog that died, parents separation, new baby brother and a parent with cancer. A quick easy read that could become a favorite read-a-loud for teachers.
