Just in time for a new school year, here is the third book in our FREE Writing Lessons from Literature series. And it’s based on Clara of Strawberry Fields, a story of a dreamy, imaginative girl growing up on a farm and her perpetually-growing family. It’s a historical novel that will make your daughter laugh and cry as she reads about the misadventures of this impulsive young girl living in the Patapsco Valley of Maryland right before the Civil War.
This set of lessons is written by my oldest daughter, Carolyn, who is also the author of Clara of Strawberry Fields. We chose to base the third book in the Writing Lessons from Literature series on her novel because my youngest daughter loves, loves, loves this novel.
Writing Lessons from Literature Book 3 invites a lot of creative writing, which should appeal to the imaginative child. My youngest daughter and her friend had a lot of fun with these lessons, and I hope yours will, too.
