Hi! I’m Melissa Taylor. I'm a children's book expert, mother of two, former teacher, former literacy trainer, and a freelance writer with a MA in Education. I love writing. I love teaching writing to children. What's more, I love to get kids excited about writing and to help them grow into strong writers. After I left teaching, I founded my blog Imagination Soup. I’ve also done freelance writing for magazines such as Parenting, Colorado Parent, Scholastic Parent and Child, Working Woman, and USA Today Health, and Random House's Brightly blog.
9 Month Writing Curriculum I offer two curriculum options for your convenience. 1) Open and Go Curriculum (for teachers & parents ready to hit the ground running) 2) Self-Guided Videos with Curriculum (for parents who need a hands-off option)
