By Julie Cigman (Routledge, £18.99)


Writing on the move, outside and inside, in dens, in bushes, in mud, or sprawled on the floor dressed as superheroes, this book covers how to help boys write by using methods which appeal to them. The practical guide draws on four boys' writing projects involving more than 80 practitioners, and reveals how to help children of both sexes develop a writers' voice and raise their ambition, enjoyment and attainment in writing.

Detailed are the stages that children move through in learning to write, how to change and develop your learning environments to provide opportunities, helping children to find a purpose to write through play, and creating partnership with parents.
