From the writing team of Enderle and Gordon,
School Stinks! is a short chapter book featuring third grader Flora, her little sister Polly, and the trials and tribulations of being the new kid in school. Is it a blessing that the other new kid, Sam, moves across the street? And who can join the Freckle Club?

A Little Apple Reader, this book is now available through the Scholastic School Market.


Something's Happening On Calabash Street
Chronicle Books

As neighbors hustle and bustle on the street and in the market, young Mischa wonders what's happening. The delicious secret is revealed as families gather in the climax of this multicultural story. The book includes thirteen recipes keyed for child assistance. We were especially pleased to have it mentioned in the New York Times Book Review.

At home or in the classroom, use this book to launch a discussion of what's special about families, favorite foods, traditions that come from various countries, and ways that we can share what's special about each of us. Don't miss the delicious Calabash Fair recipes at the end of Mishas story.


Start your story at the moment that's different, that point in time when your character must make a decision or must take action.

Write what you know is good advice. The trick is to find out what that is. Dig into your family history, remember your childhood, the cousins, the aunts and uncles, the neighborhood families, traditions, secrets.

Just as a sculptor starts with a blob of clay and then must shape it to create a beautiful object, a writer starts with a blob of words and then must revise to create a beautiful story.


26 letters in the alphabet make up all the books, magazines, television, movie, and radio scripts, letters, advertising, e-mails, everything written in the English language. Wow! (A word with only 2 different letters!)

PRANG

Is it:
a) An accident
b) The sound a spoon makes when it bumps against a fork
c) The spring on the bottom of a carriage
d) A shawl worn in India

You'll find the answer in Websters Ninth New Collegiate Dictionary!
