Learning how to write and spell is tricky, and sometimes no matter how hard you try the words just don’t make it to the paper the right way! If your young author is struggling with spelling or battling with dyslexia this gorgeous book by EK Books is a fantastic motivating read:
Come along on an exciting adventure in My Storee and discover that awesome stories are not about perfect spelling but all about having a big imagination!
Your child may recognise him/herself in the main character, a young boy who loves writing stories about the most amazing things. Sadly his creative skills are dimmed by the teacher’s red pen, and he loses interest in writing because of all the angry red lines marking his spelling mistakes. Until a new teacher comes along who looks beyond spelling and puts the spotlight on creativity, imagining skills and the magic of story telling.
My Storee is an excellent way to empower young children to express themselves through story writing, without focusing on performance and getting things ‘right’. It is also a great tool to talk to children about dyslexia and about the impact a good teacher can have on a child’s confidence. Here’s to fantastic teachers who bring out the best in all children!
You can find My Storee (RRP $24.99) in leading book stores across Australia.
