About the Book

A child, struggling with what to write about, is swept up in a whirlwind of words, pictures, and ideas, until she finds herself caught in a downpour of her own creativity. Includes writing prompts and glossary.

Book Synopsis

When it's time to write in class, one child feels like she has absolutely nothing to say. But suddenly--ker-plink--one drop, one tiny thought, hits her. And before long she's caught in a shower of funny phrases, a whirlwind of adjectives and verbs, a downpour of huge ideas. Boom, CRASH! A regular brainstorm of creativity for her to soak up and play in! With writing prompts and a glossary in the back matter, this is a story to inspire imagination and ingenuity in all readers.

Have you ever felt stuck when it comes to writing? (I know I have!) In this lovely debut picture book by Rebecca Gardyn Levington, with playful illustrations by Kate Kronreif, ideas start to flow with a Ker-plink! and a Splat! Picking up speed, words rush in with a Boom! and Crash! Soon, it’s a full-on Brainstorm! Gusts of nouns, verbs, adjectives, and adverbs float through the text. And with a flood of possibilities, it’s time to write. Teachers and parents will appreciate the delightful drops of writing prompts and the Tornado of Terminology in the backmatter. Forecast: This picture book will take classrooms by storm this fall!

What an amazing picture book! BRAINSTORM bursts with fun, lyrical language, spot on poetry and lively illustrations. Readers will be inspired by the main character who struggles with a writing assignment, until her ideas begin to trickle. Then, a full brainstorm! The author seamlessly introduces nouns, verbs, and other parts of speech in a delightful, child-friendly way. The vibrant illustrations incorporate words, which spring off the page. BRAINSTORM! is a must-read for writing lessons and especially for kids who have difficulties putting their thoughts on paper.

Thunderous applause for this playful, upbeat and inspiring story about the doldrums of the blank page that get washed away by the soft plink-plink of creativity. As the brainstorm slowly builds we get floods of ideas and a tornado of questions. By the end, the young writer is awash in ideas and ready to write. Great for school and classroom libraries, and a must-have for creative (or not-feeling-so-creative) little ones to get those creative juices flowing.

A must have for helping young writers

A child gets stuck on her writing assignment until an small idea drops, then pictures, words, and sentencing start to pour down. A brainstorm forms and her enough to WRITE. The sparse, rhyming text paired with the playful illustrations is a must have for parents, teachers, librarians, tutors, or anyone helping those struggling to get words on a paper. Story prompts and glossary in the back are an excellent addition to an already creative and helpful story.
