Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The Writing Builders series does an excellent job of getting middle-graders on the path to good writing. Each book introduces a boy and girl, working together on a project, and follows them as they learn the ins and outs of formulating a particular piece of writing. In Olivia and Oscar Build an Opinion Piece, the kids wish to let their school board know that crossing guards should be kept at their school. Together they construct a well-reasoned argument, and even include the arguments of the other side along with their own rebuttal. Graphic organization in the series is strong, as are the colorful illustrations individual to each title.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2010 Booklist"
