Gr 2-5-After an introductory section describing the type of writing, subsequent chapters provide step-by-step instructions, including samples of student work. Book Report, Journal, and Poem provide general pointers, with the latter demonstrating how to write several types of poetry. Letter, E-mail, and Interview, however, each follow just one piece of writing from start to completion. Librarians should be aware that Book Report and E-mail are quite specific in their instructions, so the directions given may not mesh with every teacher's style or with the software students are using. These titles are well-organized and feature an attractive layout; stock photos, colorful drawings, and text boxes with instructions break up the narratives and make them approachable.
