Story Seeds: Story Starter Packets for Budding Writers

This month’s author, thanks to a partnership with Penguin Random House,  is the multi-talented, Ashley Spires who writes and illustrates some amazing books including her brand new one, Fairy Science.

Ashley also wrote the Binky series of books (side note from Liz at Story Planet, this series was what got my son reading! He was struggling with dyslexia, and was turned off books, but Binky made him laugh and turn pages!).

· A creative writing activity sheet
· A writing utensil
