Big Book of Writing Prompts–Print Edition

Unit price  per 



Give them the confidence and inspiration they need to fall in love with writing.

Giving a child a writing assignment can feel similar to putting them on the front lines of a battle.

Raise your hand if your daily writing time looks something like this:

1) Yelling, crumpled papers, and spears–uh, sorry, pencils—getting thrown at the wall.

2) Sobbing, tears, and pleas for mercy.

3) Frustrated children crumpling up their papers and demanding to know why you insist on inflicting this cruel torture on them.

Sound familiar?

What if writing time brought smiles instead of tears?

 The Big Book of Writing Prompts for Kids helps you:

  • Help kids build confidence in their own abilities
  • Inspire them with exciting and engaging writing ideas
  • Move them past the frustration of the blank page and straight into writing
