Reviews

"Miriam Trehearne offers a panoramic view of teaching writing to young children. This comprehensive book will serve as a practical and inspirational clearinghouse for new and experienced educators who are determined to support young learners as they begin to draw, label, list, record, retell, invent, instruct, and share the stories of their lives." -- Shelley Harwayne, Educational Consultant and Author "In Learning to Write and Loving It! Miriam Trehearne does it all. She gives teachers the research and philosophical ground on which to stand, and shares scores of practical, classroom-based ideas to engage our youngest learners in developmentally appropriate emergent writing experiences. This is a why-to and a how-to resource not to be missed." -- Sharon Taberski, Author and Consultant "Learning to Write and Loving It is an uniquely amazing book for the busy preschool and kindergarten teacher. Finally, a well-organized book focused on using early writing development research and best practice that I can use in my classroom and share with my students' families." -- Renee Ponce Nealon, Kindergarten Teacher "Learning to Write and Loving It offers a comprehensive review of current research on early writing instruction compiled to provide practical strategies including technology tips to develop writers in your classroom. A must-have writing resource for early childhood teachers!" -- Sue Haas, Kindergarten Teacher "This is a must-read for any kindergarten teacher who wants to foster writing in the classroom. It combines all the training (and more) that I have had in the last three years-all in one organized source. I can't wait to get my copy and share with my team!" -- Dorothea Flanagan, Kindergarten Teacher "This book carefully explains all the steps to creating a rich and varied writing experience for young children. The author has successfully consolidated years of research by well-known authors and presented it in a well-organized and useful manner." -- Carol Aymar, Kindergarten Teacher "This book is extremely useful as an effective resource for any teacher of young children! It provides the necessary rationale, resources and tools to help young children write effectively, purposefully and enjoyably!" -- Julie Frederick, Kindergarten Teacher "I was impressed with the abundance of real-life examples of classroom instruction. The inclusion of many lessons, lists of resources and references to technology, make this book very user friendly." -- Iris Goldberg, Director of Early Childhood "This book is a first of its kind - full of ideas for developmentally appropriate writing activities teachers can immediately use in the classroom - a terrific resource." -- Susan B.
