Abbie Against the Storm

By Marcia Vaughan

Illustrated by Bill Farnsworth

ABBIE AGAINST THE STORM by Marcia Vaughn can be a great writing starter for students creating their own BIOGRAPHIES!

Abbie young girl whose early life is rooted in the care of a lighthouse is forced to use her courage, determination, and experience to keep the lighthouse light burning through the worst storm of the century. Written in picturesque imagery and illustrated in rich oil paintings, this adventure will spark the imagination and awe of readers of all ages,

The short but profound Kids Wings literature guide by Suzy Red leads students through the writing process by first analyzing Abbie's story map and then creating an original one based on real facts from their own stories. Suzy's students won numerous awards in creative writing during intraschool competitions. This book model helped!
