The Write Start by Jennifer Hallissy

The Write StartI just finished reading Jennifer Hallissy’s new book, The Write Start. It is full of creative activities that parents can do with their children to encourage writing. I have followed Jennifer’s blog for some time now and have been awestruck by her posts on creating writing centers and the many wonderful ideas that she shares. So, needless to say, I was thrilled to find out that we have both been busy writing books for the same publisher!

With over 10 years of EDU experience and a growing family, Mariah started Playful Learning in 2008 as a resource for parents and teachers. In 2010 Playful Learning received the Parent’s Choice Gold Medal, and in August of 2011, Shambhala Publications released her first book, Playful Learning: Develop Your Child’s Sense of Joy and Wonder. Mariah has an M.S. Ed in Elementary Education and was that girl sitting in the back of class thinking about what she would do differently if she was the teacher. Now she is happily working with a team of gifted educators to bring life-changing lessons to children, families, and schools around the world. In her free time she can be found taking long walks, enjoying a cup of tea, or swimming in the Atlantic with her husband and two daughters.
