The Write Start is aimed for all parents with young children. It is to help guide parents in teaching their children the basic principles of writing. Pay attention to your young ones as they will develop creativeness early. Young children love to grab upon crayons, which are easier for them to handle, and scribble on paper.

Remember children are always watching you, so be a good role model and read in front of your child. They’ll see that mommy and daddy are reading and they will want to read too. Developing these skills at a younger age will help them do well in school.

The Write Start is an interesting guide for parents to use. There are dozens of ideas and exercises that your child can use to develop reading and writing skills. From writing phone messages, postcards, thank you notes, writing stories, and many other tips. I recommend this book to parents.

*I would like to thank Shambhala Publications and NetGalley for sending me a copy to review.
