Creative Writing Made Easy!

Paper Doll and Craft Book

The New Millennium Girls Curriculum: Creative Writing Made Easy -introducing Isabel & Isabel’s Closet-paper doll book written by Jan May, illustrated by Juliana Davis.

Isabel is a spirited eleven year old girl who lives on Angel Ridge Horse Ranch in the little town ofMistySprings,Colorado. “Winners never quit and quitters never win, for I serve the mighty God that lives deep within!” This has been her faith motto since she was three years old. Can her faith help her beat Kip Johnson in the bare back race this Thanksgiving, even though she’s a girl? Will it help her uncover the family secret that Grandmother Biltmore never wants her to find out? Will she survive “girl” camp? Follow Isabel and her lovable horse, Starlight, on a wonderful adventure in faith and find out in this chapter book for girls ages 8-12.

This is a fun and exciting creative writing curriculum designed to eliminate the work for the teacher. It is user friendly for grades 3 – 6 with easy step by step instructions. Whether your student is a skilled writer or just starting out, this curriculum will inspire a love for writing. A wonderful paper doll project is presented in each lesson that will keep your students happily busy for hours. The twelve lessons take the student from creating a character to developing a setting and plot. Learn things such as “Show Don’t Tell” and how to punch up your dialogue.

My Review: The author created this curriculum for Christian students which have been designed to easily guide the student through the writing process. The 12 steps help the student to develop a character, develop a themes and story ideas, create a plot and a setting, show, and don’t tell. Now you can begin to write the beginning of your story, writing dialogue that works the middle and the ending, how to spice up your story, editing your story and putting it all together.  

The companion book, Creative Writing Made Easy! A Paper Doll and Craft Book has 32 pages of clothing to design and  color, hairstyles and instructions on how to create a fun folder closet with bedrooms and scenery. These creative and interactive books will not only help students who would like to become a writer but have fun with the paper doll project. The author Jan May describes the New Millennium Girls as an ordinary girl with faith in an extraordinary God, growing up in New Millennium.

FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.

  2. These books look so interesting and informative i cannot help but comment on them, as i am personally ineterested in both English (writing) and creative work i.e making things. I am currently studdying as a student both English Literature and English Language but also fine art; the complete combination! i therefore am sure that these books look a really good read for anyone (including myself) who is similar minded! xx

  3. My 10 year old daughter would absolutely love this. She is very advanced in writing and reading for her age and her favorite pastime is writing.
    In fact, she just wrote a 6 page story for her class writing prompt this week. (They are only required to write 2 paragraphs… ha ha) I like that the books develop writing skills in a step process.
    I’ve never heard of these books but they look great! Thanks for hosting the giveaway.

  4. I am glad I caught this review. I homeschool and although my daughter is in 2nd grade, she is gifted. I have been looking for a writing program that would be interesting for her. I think she would love this, especially since she recently got to go horseback riding. I especially like at it “eliminates work for the teacher.”
