Product Description

Review

A truly creative book that is bound to inspire the JK Rowlings and Jacqueline Wilsons of the future. --tBk magazine

A writing workshop in book form. --Bookfest

Packed with ideas to get children's imaginations flowing, from tips on characters, settings and story starter, to word lists and hints on titles. There are also plenty of blank lines, just begging to be written on. --We Love This Book

For all budding story tellers, this is a must-have book: from simple story plans to techniques for more elaborate stories, your storytelling skills will jump to a different league. --Angels and Urchins

Children will never run out of ideas with this inspiring book which really makes writing fun. Give them a head start on writing and make sure you get a copy of this super book. --Parents in Touch

I wish I had had this fabulous book when I was young girl... an absolute gem for creative kids or for kids whose creativity needs a boost. --Book Reviews for Mums

Simply fantastic for encouraging budding young authors to write their very own masterpieces... a really superb and highly educational 'exercise' book which not only gives children a fascinating insight into story writing and creation, but also encourages them to have a go themselves. This is definitely a personal favourite...well done Usborne! --First4Dads

Another gem from Usborne... includes a number of different writing activities, hints, tips and handy tasks all of which help inspire and guide your child on their creative path and aid their writing journey. --The Little Book

Part secret journal, part recipe collection, the Write Your Own Story Book mixed excitement with promise with figments of the imagination.... Ideal for 8-12 year olds, it's full of tips on how to come up with story ideas, different perspectives to take on telling your tales, as well as lots of prompts to get your creative juices flowing. --Playing by the Book

This is a brilliant activity book perfect for children, at the beginning of the book there is - Getting Started - With lists of Character and Setting suggestions, and Possible Story Starters. Then you have the start of 16 story themes, there are a variety mix, which is prefect, from School Journal, Time Travel, Animal Adventure, Whodunit, Stage School every topic has Questions to consider, word to use and some have points to consider. The last bit of the book is Story Writing Toolkit - Giving your Stories great titles, exciting writing, experimenting with sentences....

It combines everything perfectly for children aged 8 plus and in terms of content the explanations are written in a very child friendly way. I love the colourful borders. I am delighted with this book, it is defiantly worth buying, apart from keeping them busy writing (not bored in holidays), and it is a wonderful toolkit book, adding to there writing skills. I defiantly have seen improvement in my childs writing stories skills, I'm so glad I bought it!

Format: Spiral-bound
One of the most common questions we are asked at Parents in Touch is 'How can I help my child's creative writing?' This book is an excellent resource for doing just that.;In the format of a spiral bound notebook, it is divided into two main sections - a writing section and a writing toolkit. The coloured illustrations and ready to use lines are just crying out to be filled and whatever interests your child has, they are sure to find it covered here. Try something new - create a comic strip, tell a picture from a story, create a fairy tale.... all illustrated in full colour. The writing toolkit is packed with ideas for amazing stories. Children will never run out of ideas with this inspiring book which really makes writing fun. Give them a head start on writing and make sure you get a copy of this super book.

I bought this for my 6 year old as she loves writing. It is beautifully laid out with plot ideas, character ideas, how to do a begining, middle and end etc. It is a little difficult for a 6 year old though. My 9 year old loved it so I bought one for her too. She has completed the whole book and learnt alot from it. So I recommend it for 8-9 year olds.

Endless amounts of time have I been washing up or cleaning whilst listening to my little ones play. The stories they come up with are imaginative and unique, to say they are only 2 and 4 they have a better imagination then most adults I know.
I thought how do I record them in a fun way as to have them forever... video worked well but i'd be recording all day so I needed another solution...well this is the answer for us!
I make a huge effort to preserve my kids childhoods in every way, we are grown up's for far too long with no time and too much stress, it's nice to revisit the days of worry free times and this is how I'm going to do it for mine.
So far it's amazing, obviously I am writing down what my little ones tell me, but all the idea's are their own and drawings well lets say they are completely unique too, this is a lovely way to keep those special stories forever, you never know one of them might just be the next Roald Dahl and this will be their very early work....or if not then it is a treasure that hopefully will be forever passed down and never forgotten, inspiring the next generation or at least allowing laughter to fill the home for a while.
A stunning gift no matter the age, to record even the most bizzar and out of this world stories and creations. It is so easy to be inspired by this book and once that spark has been triggered the imagination flows. I bought one of these for my eldest son too who is 8 and he is enjoying it immensely, perfect for a mainstream or home educated child, something that they can have the satisfaction of completing themselves and a perfect keepsake for them or a gift for their grandparents or someone else extra special in their lives.
I highly recommend this book to one and all (even adults!)

This is the best book ever written. I loved writing stories in it. I am 10 and can truthfully say that this is a brilliant book for children. The story pages are also in worksheet form making them good for teachers in english lessons.
