The ability to put thoughts into writing is an essential skill vital to success in school—from elementary school through college. Bestselling author Dan Gutman helps kids master this important skill with his fun, informative writing guide, My Weird Writing Tips. Dan offers tricks for spelling hard words, understanding the difference between similar words like “its” and “it’s,” and conquering grammar stumbling blocks like commas and apostrophes. He also teaches readers how to write an engaging story, in line with the grades 2–5 Common Core goals for writing a narrative. With illustrated appearances from A.J. and Andrea, stars of his bestselling My Weird School series, and with his trademark wacky sense of humor, Dan makes learning the writing and storytelling basics so fun kids will forget they’re learning.

Learning Value
This humorous, conversational narrative is chock full of very useful tips for budding older elementary or middle grade writers. With funny illustrations and a sly wit, the author invites kids to learn how to write well while validating their fears or disinterest in the topic. In many ways, this resource reads like a Wimpy Kid book, but readers will be hard pressed to find a more useful tool in teaching the art of writing to kids. Everything from where to find ideas to how to rewrite successfully to rules for punctuation and spelling are covered in a thoroughly entertaining style. Even the most reluctant student will find this an easy read, and parents/teachers will be thrilled with how educational it is.

Entertaining, educational, thorough, and fun--what more could you ask for in a resource for teaching kids how to write well?
