Inspiring children to write
Writing is a magical medium. It’s a vehicle for communication, connection and creativity. It’s an opportunity to learn and grow, have fun and sharpen your senses.
Children need to start writing early because writing helps to cultivate emotional growth, develop critical thinking skills and improve school performance.
Being able to express yourself is a skill and gift. By cultivating this capability in your child, you are giving them the priceless power to share their thoughts and ideas with the world in a meaningful way.
We strongly believe there’s a writer in all of us because there’s language in each of us. Have we not all shared the same spark of joy in first learning to write our very own name? Writing is self-discovery and self-expression. We begin with a spark. To inspire a child to write we must reignite that very first wonder and delight, and we must hold the spark steadfast with the intention of kindling a long-lasting love of language within the child.
