Industry Reviews

""Where Cranes Weave and Bamboo Sings" is a valuable resource for speech pathologists and teachers working with children on reading comprehension, narrative structures, and visualisation skills. The workbook's gradual progression of complexity, from simple stories to more intricate narratives, provides a tailored approach for individualized support. The incorporation of illustrations enhances engagement, making it an effective tool for diverse learning styles. Clear and concise instructions, coupled with notes for the user, make this workbook a user-friendly asset for narrative development in children."

- Melanie Arthur (Speech Pathologist) Sydney, NSW, Australia -

"Where Cranes Weave and Bamboo sings" is a unique addition to the teaching of narrative. The very beginning writer, even the kindergarten student can follow the simple breakdown of what makes a story. The layout of beginning middle and end is explained and the young writer is led to practise and respond to multiple stories.

The text is well designed and colour and black line drawings create variation in the pages that stimulate the reader.

This is a worthwhile addition to the teaching tools available in primary classrooms and the workshop activities among older aspiring writers."
