Description

In the inspirational sequel to Andrew Larsen's A Squiggly Story, a boy meets a blank page in this fun exploration of the writing process, celebrating self-expression, self-discovery and letting your imagination roam. The young boy listens as Mr. Lopez tells his class about next week's assignment: write a story about yourself. “You can write about ANYTHING,” he says, “as long as you write about YOU.” Marcus is going to write about his hat collection. Alia is going to write about the vampires she talks about all the time. But all the boy can come up with is a title: “The Story of Me by Me.” He can't figure out what it should be about. His sister suggests starting with lists --- Things I Like, Things I Know. Only, the things all seem disconnected. Is there some way to connect them, and make them into a story? The kindergartener who learned to use squiggles to write a story in award-winning Andrew Larsen's A Squiggly Story is now in second grade and learning to write an autobiography. Told in the same authentic child's voice, this playful book encourages readers to just start, even if they don't know how their story will go. It offers an accessible early language arts lesson on the writing process, exploring important basics (brainstorming, first draft, revising) and key terms (autobiography, editing, title, cover). Mike Lowery's bold illustrations incorporate story panels and dialogue bubbles, keeping the energy high and giving a fresh and modern feel to the pages. A strong tie-in with early literacy curricula, this book also works well for supplementary or at-home learning. It's a perfect choice to inspire the storyteller in every child!
