Sprouts: Stories and Poems Written by /Wordscope Asso/Paper/095854820X/S035-B
This is Australia's first book of stories written by children under the age of 14 years. The sixteen stories were selected from WordScope classes and story writing competitions. The book is illustrated by professional artist, Robert Dickins. It is the first of many future volumes. 'Sprouts' is for adults who appreciate what children have to say; it is for parents and others to read to children and for children who like to read and share their stories, and for teachers of story writing for children.
