Word After Word After Word by Patricia MacLachlan, beloved author of many timeless books like Sarah Plain and Tall and Painting the Wind, is a wonderful new book that teachers and students alike are going to love!
This book is told from the perspective of 4th graders in Miss Cash’s class. The students tell what happens when Ms. Mirabel comes to visit their class to teach them about writing. Ms. Mirabel is a real author, so she shows them things and tells them things about writing that inspire the kids.
Along the way though, the reader learns all about the students and their lives. The students come to see how writing is not a pointless activity, but something very special they can do to reach each other and to touch the lives of their families.
If you have ever wanted to be a writer or if you have had trouble with writing, then you will love this book!
