`The book clearly describes many creative ways to engage children in writing. A number of different approaches are suggested, with activities that amongst others include the use of talk, picture books and other visual stimuli. It explains how these can used effectively and easily in the classroom so that teachers, what ever their level of experience, can feel confident to use them. The activities are manageable with ideas to suit children of all abilities across the primary age range' - Liz Sharp, Literacy Consultant, Milton Keynes LEA
