Hershenhorn uses the alphabet to explore writing. In 26 stanzas (and extra informational paragraphs), she covers all the fundamentals of writing from the alphabet to Zorro.
What I Thought: An absolute gem especially for the tween crowd. The information is simple and frank. I learned quite a lot myself. Loved the quotes from children’s authors and the writing tips. If I ever start a writing group for the tween crowd, S is for Story will be my go-to resource. The illustrations were great—realistic and yet a little fantastic.
