Special #December #Podcast Series! Blondie Shares #TwelveDays of #MiddleGrade #ReadingRecommendations: #Writing with Rosie by Patricia Reilly Giff

Welcome back, my fellow creatives! I’ve always been thrilled to see how much my three little Bs love to read, but it makes my heart melt to hear my daughter Blondie say she wants to do a podcast with me to share her favorite books. When I said we could make a little “12 Days of Christmas” style series in December, Blondie whipped through her books and picked twelve for us to study. She even designed our banner with her favorite fantasy creature. x

So here we are! I’m blessed to have such amazing kindred spirits in my life, and I am so very blessed to have a daughter who loves storytelling as much as I do.

On the fifth day of Blondie’s Books, my daughter gave to me:

What does a reader experience in those opening pages, and what lessons can a writer take away in studying but a few paragraphs? Let’s find out!

Why did you pick this book, Blondie?

I first saw this book when I was browsing the free book section at the library. My mom spotted this and I’ve been in love with it since. It has some very useful tips for writers starting their journey and I certainly think if you have any young ‘uns at home who are thinking about writing a novel, this is the perfect choice.

Stay tuned for more storytellin’ and carol-singin’!

Read on, share on, and write on, my friends!
