To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
The Best Story is an excellent book about writing and being true to yourself. My seven year old (second grade) granddaughter loved it!! I loved it!! The illustrations are so creative and hilarious. The expressions of the various characters including the cat are priceless! The message of the book is a great one for all ages. My granddaughter really keyed in on the message of the book and started a conversation about it the minute the last word was read. We also spent extra time enjoying all the details of the illustrations and all the imagination involved in creating this book.
This book is great for teaching children about how to find ideas for their writing. All of the first grade teachers at my school, myself included, use this book for that purpose each year. The kids love it and it relates perfectly to the lesson.
I used this in the classroom when I taught writing to elementary students using the writers workshop format. I also found that other teachers wanted to borrow it too when I was a coach for writers workshop.
