With conspiratorial enthusiasm, author Jack Gantos assures kids that they can write great stories--the secret is being a good listener, tuning in to all the interesting stuff happening in the world around you, and writing it down in a journal. Kids will find in Gantos a funny, inspiring, supportive, and confiding teacher. Gantos's passion and excitement are infectious as he offers advice on mining daily life and interactions for story ideas and shares examples of his own stories from when he was a young writer. An accompanying PDF includes illustrations, word lists, and writing exercises. This audiobook is a valuable tool to use in classrooms and is welcome encouragement for any budding young writer.
