Make Your Mark – a book about creative writing, confidence, compassion and caring
My new book, Make Your Mark, brings you 30+ projects that will help your child develop a love of writing, creative storytelling, self-confidence and compassion. Through play, art, language, and writing this book will help your child discover themself, and make their mark on the world.
Make Your Mark will help you take the simple act of sharing stories and stretch it to help your child develop their confidence, compassion and caring.
Storytelling has been central to communities for centuries. Stories let us see into the lives and feelings of others, and our own writing helps us explore ideas and discover who we are. This book will build your child’s love of writing, with practical skills and creative inspiration.
It will also nurture your child’s social skills, helping them to understand others and be a great team member. They’ll see how, although young, they can already make their mark on the world, through simple acts of kindness and citizenship projects.
