Fanny & Annabelle - By Holly Hobbie
This is a great book for introducing children to the art of creative writing! It teaches that ideas for stories can come from anywhere, but especially from real-life experiences. Fanny not only manages to write a cute story about her doll Annabelle, but she also learns a valuable lesson in honesty. The phrases "holy cow" and "heavens to Betsey" are used, but the book has a very wholesome story line. The fun illustrations alternate between drawings of the main characters and sketches from the story Fanny is writing.
