Great lies to tell small children

“When I was young, Weetabix came in eight different shapes.”
“Before they can fight, superheroes have to pick out all the noises their punches and kicks will make.”
“One in ten fish are afraid of water.”

Andy Riley’s book, Great Lies to Tell Small Kids has long been a favourite of mine.  Now I know that lying to children is wrong, but sometimes it’s fun, and sometimes it’s rather productive!  However, it isn’t this book that inspired this post, but the answers to a question on our Facebook page, “What scenarios have you used to generate great enthusiasm and brilliant persuasive writing?”

And that’s where the lies, lies and damned lies began, all in the name of improving writing!  So thanks all for your suggestions and ideas, we’re sharing them here for everyone:To read more of this post please visit our NEW WEBSITE
