As a homeschool mom of 3 boys I know the struggle to excite boys to write. A miraculous thing happened when, at my wits end, I asked my son to write about the contents of the toilet. It was magical. He was putting words together in sentences and paragraphs without complaining. Through laughter I was able to help him edit his grammar, spelling, and sentence structure.
When allowed to write about what interests and excites them, kids are more willing to try. Out of desperation, I reached my child and he learned to write. I hope this book brings laughter and a love of writing to your reluctant writer as well.
