The Usborne Write Your Own Story Book

The Usborne Write Your Own Story Book was recently gifted to Daughter and not only am I seriously impressed by its contents,  I’m also a little jealous that I didn’t have a copy growing up.

I think what I like best about this book is how it manages to convey important elements of writing in a way that is simultaneously child-friendly and technical. It also manages to offer a range of activities for budding authors to practice on,  without making them feel like work-sheets.

There’s a wonderful sense of fun to all of the suggestions – a cheekiness that Daughter just loves. I really like the fact that the reader is encouraged to write in the book, meaning that there’s a record of work to look back on at the end – it essentially becomes a DIY short story compilation. As someone who wrote prolifically as a child but who has few remaining examples,  I feel as though this will grow into a lovely keepsake. 

Which childhood hobbies have you maintained?  Are there any books out there to encourage more young people to engage in them?
