This review is from: Descriptosaurus: Supporting Creative Writing for Ages 8-14 (Hardcover)
This book definitely deserves five stars. I bought this book and put another two in the basket so I would have a variety of teaching resources at hand for creative writing; however, I soon found out that, without doubt, this is the definitive guide for creating some of the best work I have ever marked. Landscapes, place, characters and features are expertly crafted into sections which are then phrased by nouns, adjectives and verbs. Sample sentences are another key feature which allows all this fantastic language work to be threaded together.
I cannot speak more highly of this gem of a book. It's not just for teachers. Anyone can access the materials in this book - the possibilities are endless!
What's more, there's a CD with all of the resources on too. As you can probably tell, I am really pleased with this book. You won't be disappointed.
