Are these literary analysis or writing instruction books? There is so much great information packed into such an attractive package: a visual symphony of images and instruction for each theme. For example, you will learn tidbits about the origin of fairy tales, the 5 most popular ways to begin a fairy tale, as well as prompts and outlines to write your own story (i.e. beginning, set-up, obstacle and ending). Along the way is a surprising amount of literary analysis as students are guided step by step through the writing process. Some pages have students writing in the book directly, making these a charming keepsake. They are so pretty that you will want to read again and again! 6.75x7.75", 96pp. SC. ~ Sara
