Trees in the Forest: Connecting with Character


As many of you know, my good friend Tracy Molitors and I have recently published a book: Trees in the Forest: Growing Readers and Writers through Deep Comprehension. 

Our book is now available for purchase through my website (, Amazon, and through Brave Writer (!

This week, I am taking over the Brave Writer Blog! Each day, I will post an activity for you to use with your children and discuss how it can be used to grow their writing skills!

Today's post is called Connecting with Character. We will discuss how to help our young readers begin to relate to story ideas through connections with characters, and by extension, growing their ability to think deeply and write deeply.
