Yes, kids can write books too!
July 19, 2010
Kids are incredible! They are naturally sensitive and curious about the world around them. Their writing reflects an innocent inquisitiveness about everyday situations that often contains nuggets of profound wisdom and insight. Here's what David Melton, founder of Landmark, has to say about the talents and abilities of children:
When friends or colleagues ask what I've been doing during the summer, and I tell them I've been teaching children to write and illustrate books, I see them force Cheshire cat smiles. I hear them say, "How nice. I bet their books are really cute." Their demeanors reveal the prevailing attitudes of "little heads, little minds." I'm sure they envision stories of gingerbread men and childish cartoons.

Our new look
June 25, 2010
We are very excited to announce the completion of our new website! You've probably already noticed the new look, but here are some other cool new features we'd like to point out:
The contest entries are in!
It's that time of year again...the deadline for the National Kids-in-Print Contest for Students! June 1 was the last day for submissions to the 2010 contest, and we are so pleased with the entries that have come in. We've already started looking through these wonderful books, and as always have been super impressed by the creativity and talent of each student. We have received books about adoption, books with waffle monsters, books with kitties, pirates, and dogs that run for president! Books about Easter, books about Greeks--there are so many great ones to choose from! But choose we must. Over the next several months, our judges will review each book and make that difficult decision: who will be selected as the 2010 winners of the National Kids-in-Print Contest?
In the meantime, we extend our deepest congratulations to everyone that has entered. Each book represents a significant accomplishment by the student. Whatever the decision of the judges, we hope these books will be treasured by students and their families for years to come. posted by Landmark House, Ltd. @ 1:06 PM 1 Comments
