About this lesson

Using a video by Maggie Lineberry Photography as inspiration and her picture book "Quincy the Quail and the Mysterious Egg" as an example, author Barbara Renner shows you how to write your own story. It's easy to write a fun story when you follow along with her step by step instructions. As a bonus, if you email your completed story to Barbara she'll read it on her YouTube channel and send you a coloring page from one of her Quincy the Quail picture books.
