Thoroughly Christian in its perspective, Learn to Write the Novel Way is a nice blend of humor, grammar, vocabulary, sentence structure and the mechanics of writing. Broken into 13 manageable sections to be completed over the course of a year, or galloped through in one-semester for the older well-motivated child, parental involvement is minimal, but required. From coming up with a story to publishing the book, there is nothing author Carole Thaxton has left out. This unique, finely done program will fill a hole in many home education programs.
However - and this is where I hop over to the other side - contrary to what others may say, not all children are meant to write novels. I do not believe in catering a curriculum to what a child wants to do, but rather what his or her God-given bent is. There are children who can write but are too lazy; that is a discipline issue. But there are children who struggle with writing of any sort, and a project of this magnitude can be demoralizing. Carefully consider the bent of your child. If it is towards writing, you've just discovered a treasure. But if otherwise, we would encourage you to consider another language arts program. Not reproducible, but easily adapts to being used with a notebook so that other family members can also benefit from the same book.
