Melinda Long part 3 - on Endings!

Melinda's giving us examples of the different techniques to end a story.

Like full circle - how in "How I Became A Pirate," where it starts out with the boy talking about soccer practice and pirate treasure, and ends with pirate treasure and him off to play soccer.

One more is response to a repeated phrase, like in "Alexander and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day,"the repeated phrase that ends the book is: "Even in Australia."

last tip quote:

"Don't write down to kids - just tell a good story!"
