#fortheloveofwriting




Our 28 day February challenge begins with sharing our stories.  The art of storytelling begins with listening to stories as well as telling the stories of our lives.  This month we want you to talk and talk some more.  Tell your story, listen to your child’s story then find time write to write these down.  Your dinner table conversation will take on a life of its own. Years from now you will have a book of memories you will continue to share.  Instead of show and tell, think of it as tell and show.

 

Please share your child’s writing with us at on twitter @ kid2kidlit #fortheloveofwriting, or on our facebook page!
