Mention "creative writing" to most typical boys, and they'll run screaming from the house, or play sick, or try to flush their creative writing book down the toilet. However, "Caution: Writing In This Book Might Be Fun!" was written by a boy who really hates creative writing. Stephen, my son, sympathizes with your son's writing struggles and tries to give your son ideas of zany-boy things to write about. Full of bright colors and obnoxious color schemes, writing examples to get the proverbial ball rolling, and crazy ideas (with a few cautionary comments from Mom Kemmerer - er, me), your son might actually enjoy creative writing!
"Caution: Writing In This Book Might Be Fun!" (Girls version) was written by my daughter and my daughter-in-law. My daughter, Monica, loves to write and desires to pass her sense of enjoyment on to other students. My daughter-in-law, though she doesn't profess to "love" writing, is a wonderful writer. She is, however, one of the most talented, feminine, delightful young ladies you'd ever want to meet. Monica and Rachel teamed up to create a book full of wonderful, girly ideas to write about. Your daughter might actually enjoy creative writing!
Included in the book are etiquette hints (as different cultures have widely differing etiquette practices), food profiles, fascinating cultural tidbits, ideas for a world travel night, food journaling opportunities, and even a passport activity (where your kids will get their "passport" stamped for each country they "visit").
The author, Loree' Pettit did a wonderful job of making Eat Your Way Through the USA a “friendly” book, adapting the recipes to be as simple as possible.

Included in the book are food profiles, cultural tidbits, food journaling opportunities, and much more. The USA book is divided into 50 states + DC (featuring a meal from each). What a fun way to homeschool - after all, you have to eat! Why not make eating an educational experience???
