Discover creative ways to introduce your child to the world of letters and set him or her up for writing success with this treasure trove of smart ideas. Whether your child is a pre-writer who is just starting to practice grasping a pencil or crayon, or a beginner writer who is starting to string together letters, words, and sentences, this book offers information and activities that will help your child develop a love of letters.


From sand writing and chalkboard play to memory games and letter-writing kits, this book includes fifty-two inventive activities and games to engage your child in the world of letters. Each activity includes specific suggestions to tailor the project to your child’s learning level, including variations for Scribblers (pre-writers), Spellers (emerging writers), Storytellers (beginner writers), and Scholars (more experienced young writers).


Based on the author’s experience working with hundreds of parents and children as a pediatric occupational therapist, she offers a wealth of information on ways to instruct your child in the basics of writing and to support your young writer at home.
