WriteShop Junior is a creative writing program that appeals to many learning styles. As with all WriteShop products, WriteShop Junior Book D helps you guide children through the steps of the writing process.
To keep the experience fun for everyone, each lesson includes engaging games and activities that teach and review important writing and self-editing skills. And whether you have a more advanced child or one who is fairly new to writing, this program is flexible so children can work at their own level.
