Basher Basics: Creative Writing

Basher Basics: Creative Writing

I'm sure many of our teacher and school librarian fans are familiar with Basher Books, published by longtime Unshelved sponsor Kingfisher. Simon Basher is an internationally recognized illustrator, author and artist. He is best known for creating and illustrating a novel series of books that make science and other topics fun and accessible for grade-school students. His newest book is Creative Writing a topic near and dear to my heart, and I am super excited to give a copy to my homeschooled son, who is just starting to write stories.

P.S. A reader writes:

I'm so excited you featured the Basher Books--the kids in my elementary library love them and I can't keep them on the shelves; I have them all and am putting this newest addition on my book order now. Anyone who can make the Periodic Tables interesting to fourth and fifth graders has my utmost respect and admiration!
