A noteworthy review of Rev Up Your Writing from School Library Journal on November 1, 2015
These slim volumes present solid information and sound advice offered in concise, clearly written sentences printed in a large font. Written in a friendly, encouraging tone, they make for engaging reading. Cheerful, colorful cartoons and photos add to the visual appeal. Each title contains examples—usually hand lettered on lined paper, to resemble students’ work—of the specific type of writing, followed by questions to reinforce readers’ comprehension of concepts. Safety advisories appear in Blogs warning children not to share personal information. ‘Tips for Young Readers’ includes helpful guidelines. Lively and accessible motivators for students’ writing efforts. Good options for creative writing units.
