Picture prompts: another great writing resource for kids

A downloadable book for home or classroom!

The Adventures of Pirate Dog
A downloadable book of picture prompts

Pictures are one of the very best ways to get the attentions of young writers. And my pictures are sure to fire up their imaginations!

Why? Because these drawings flowed from stories elementary school kids invented in my workshops. I've sifted through the hundreds of drawings I've done in schools and selected the ones I think are perfect for generating stories. You'll find in these pages dragons, aliens, monsters, wizards, talking animals and adventurous kids -- all captured in dynamic black-and-white line drawings.

Accompanying the drawings are lessons that guide kids through the process of creating a story from the situation pictured in the art. The worksheets are easy to use and written with simple vocabulary. I have developed stories with tens of thousands of kids -- I know how to bring out their ideas! These lessons will be a great addition to your creative writing program.
