Neil and Nan Build Narrative Nonfiction
While putting pen to paper may not seem all that similar to using a hammer and nails, some parallels can be drawn. Careful planning and diligent construction lead to a robust, enjoyable finished product. This series gives young students practical, engaging lessons on building their writing skills in various strands. Each book is a story about two friends working on a writing project. They take the reader step-by-step through the process as they work on the project, with clear explanations and examples of what they are doing along the way. The paperback books have numerous illustrations in full color. -Zach
