Teaching at sentence level is essential to improve writing. Knowing this, I desperately searched for a book packed full of sentence models that I could use to inspire my students. On discovering that no such book existed, I spent the next year poring over hundreds and hundreds of books to tap into the magic formula of what makes a great sentence. I sorted all these fantastic sentence structures into the domains through which we write stories: action, setting, character, feelings, physical effects, thoughts, the senses, and dialogue. This book contains hundreds of those sentence models. Each chapter also contains practical advice on effectively teaching the different aspects of story writing. The sentences can be used as creative writing exercises, inspiration for your exemplary text, or ideas for writing lessons. This book will reveal the magic formula behind great writing and give you a secret window into how this writing is created.

The gift, like so many gifts, was a book...' So begins the essay by Robert Macfarlane that inspired this collection. In this cornucopia of an anthology, you will find essays by some of the world's most beloved novelists, nonfiction writers, essayists and poets. 'You will see books taking flight in flocks, migrating around the world, landing in people's hearts and changing them for a day or a year or a lifetime. 'You will see books sparking wonder or anger; throwing open windows into other languages, other cultures, other minds; causing people to fall in love or to fight for what is right. 'And more than anything, over and over again, you will see books and words being given, received and read - and in turn prompting further generosity.' Published to coincide with the 20th anniversary of global literacy non-profit, Room to Read, The Gifts of Reading forms inspiring, unforgettable, irresistible proof of the power and necessity of books and reading.
