A reflection of special childhood moments in ten writer's lives demonstrates the similar, different, and life-changing experiences of children during various time periods and includes individual explanations of how they discovered the path toward becoming writers. Reprint. (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Perfect for literature classes and beginning writers of all ages!

"Tell me a story of when you were little" is something children love to ask. Now ten award-winning writers: Mary Pope Osborne, Laurence Yep, James Howe, Katherine Paterson, Walter Dean Myers, Susan Cooper, Nicholasa Mohr, Reeve Lindbergh, Avi, and Francesca Lia Block tell young readers stories drawn from their own childhood memories. The authors have also contributed notes about why they chose particular memories to write about and what in their lives led them to be writers. In this way, the extraordinary stories in When I Was Your Age bear witness to the origins of a writer’s art—and honor the courage, tenderness, and fragility of children.
