This collection of 50 letters to young readers from John Jacobson is filled with thoughts and creative writing sparks that will help you do just that. After each letter, John gives a "starter" question, phrase or suggestion, and you and your students take it from there. Use these sparks to express thoughts, ask questions and dream. Enhance your creative writing skills while addressing important language arts requirements too. Connect with John on the enclosed enhanced CD as he reads his letters to you for a more personal touch. The CD also includes PDFs of the letters and a specially designed journal page for each of the 50 starter phrases.
