Writing my way through the school year!

Another giveaway! YEAH! This time I am giving away a copy of the picture book, Stinky Steven Stench!”   This book was written by Lavern T. Robinson, who is a 14 year ELA teacher.  It was illustrated by Lowell Hildebrandt.  This is her first children’s book and she is very excited about sharing it with other educators!

“If you enjoy the tongue twisting craft of alliteration, this book is for you.  Stinky Steven Stench and his sassy sister are always squabbling.  See how their everyday sibling rivalries lead to disaster.”

I am sure your students will empathize with Steven and his sister, while learning how alliteration can bring a story to life!  Hopefully, it will encourage them to create their own stories using figurative language!

The book is available at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble, and AuthorHouse.com!

So, if you add a comment to this post, your name will be added to the drawing!  I will use Random.org to choose the lucky winner. The drawing will end on February 26, 2012! Good luck to all!

  12. Children learn so much while ‘playing’ with words. As I teach my first graders a new poem or song it ‘stays’ with them because of our beautiful language. Alliteration is especially fun! Thanks for your blog…I learn a lot from reading it.
