What I'm Reading Now - Pseudonymous Bosch

I just finished Write This Book, by Pseudonymous Bosch, author of the Secret Series.  While this was a fun book to read and write with my own kids, I don't know if it would be as much fun it you hadn't already read the Secret Series.   As I was reading it though, I kept thinking it would also make a great classroom tool.  So great in fact, that I am going to use excerpts of it to teach my students about literary elements in the fall.  Because the point of this interactive book is to involve young readers in the writing process, the author clearly and succinctly explains the elements of a good story.  Of course, he does this with his signature wit.  (If you haven't read the Secret Series yet, buy it today.  You'll see what I mean.)

Happy reading and writing,
