Writing / Research Tip Tuesday

It's Tuesday and I have another great tip to share! This one is from children's author Nancy Viau, author of SAMANTHA HANSEN HAS ROCKS IN HER HEAD. Check it out! And make sure to stop by and visit Nancy on your way out.

"Children's Writer's Word Book
by Alijandra Mogilner.

This is a great book for anyone who wants to know the reading level of a particular word. (easy readers, the educational market, kids' magazines, etc.)"


Sounds like an awesome book for children's authors, especially those writing for younger markets. Thanks so much Nancy!

  3. I read somewhere that there is an online program to plug your story into to that tells you the reading level of it. This would be great for fixing and finding alternate word choices, I bet.
