Karen Benke has created an imaginative place for children to let their mind wander and write their hearts. This book is equal parts motivator, instigator, and proposition maker. Henke invites the reader to take chances, leap before they look, and explore the unknown.
Rip the Page! is filled with poems and other literary tidbits to entice the reader to respond in writing. The pages offer traditional lines as well as other innovative ways to draw the writer to the page.
Both struggling writers and the eager to ink up a page will find something of value in Benke's Rip the Page! and teachers may want to keep a copy or two in the classroom to offer kids on their struggle-days.
