American Booksellers Association "Picks List" Winner of a 2004 Parents' Choice Recommended Award Winner of the Best Trade Book with Educational Application award from Global Learning Initiative, a partnership of The Bologna Children's Book Fair and The Association of Educational Publishers Selected for The Original Art exhibition at the Museum of Illustration Winner of a Children's Choices Award from the International Reading Association/Children's Book Council Winner of the National Parenting Publications Honors Award Innovative yet accessible writing strategies appropriate for both fiction and nonfiction are presented in this enchanting tale of a writing lion who holds court for a cast of animal friends. Aspiring writers learn the essential nature of nouns and adjectives and how to use them to express their individual visions so that they "show and don't tell" every time. Writing lessons are cleverly integrated into a tale that incorporates a sound chip, a scratch-and-sniff patch, and a tactile object to engage the aspiring writer's five senses in fun proofs.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "With a title that broadcasts the classic mantra, Show; Don't Tell: Secrets of Writing by Josephine Nobisso, illus. by Eva Montanari, acts as a manual based on the author's writing workshops. Prompts to incorporate tactile, audio and olfactory details help kids focus on their senses when writing; a cast of animal characters-rendered in whimsical acrylics and pencil-lead aspiring authors along with brief tips and words of wisdom.
