I love anything written by Ralph Fletcher! Funny,m but he writes teacher resource books that I don't want to put down. It's like having a good friend and colleague sit next to me and just talk about craft. This book is geared to teachers but it certainly does help a reader appreciate how language and word choice can really make a good piece of text fabulous! As in his other books, Fletcher gives excellent grade appropriate mini lesson ideas and of course, his bibliography is loaded with rich titles to use withing the classroom.
