When I Was Your Age, Volume One
Original Stories About Growing Up

author/anthology editor: Amy Ehrlich
illustrator: Christina Angarola

"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 writerís art--and honor the courage, tenderness, and fragility of children.

Perfect for literature classes and beginning writers of all ages!
