Animal Life Cycles
"This attractive series absolutely nails it for the beginning reader who wants more information about interesting animals. Altogether, just what a primary school library needs!"
Easy-to-read doesn’t mean easy to write! Alissa Thielges, author of our new Spot Wild Cats series, stopped by to talk about her writing process.
Q: Spot Wild Cats is a series for kids just learning to read. What challenges did you encounter writing at this low level?
AT: It’s hard to strike that perfect balance of fun and informative with so few words. There were times when I had a great fact, but it just didn’t fit with the rest of the text or for the age level.
