The Little Sand Shark

(This was drawn by one of our author/illustrators. He “piggybacked” off of the Little Red Hen to write his own version “The Little Sand Shark” who instead of baking bread he makes a Kelp Cake)

This Writing made Easy not Hard, Fun not Boring!

PiggyBack Books has created an amazing writing program designed with your school, youth program, family and your children in mind!

Does your child have a great imagination?

Does your child love art?

That’s all it takes to be an author the PiggyBack Way.

Imagine your child actually loving writing? Why? Because her whole self was part of it! Why? he got to act out the story – prior to writing it! Why? Because  – art is at the heart of it! Why? Because each child who participates in our programs will publish his/her own book! Really a hard cover book!

See your child reading the book they wrote! Being proud and self confident!

PiggyBack Books has  handpicked the best of the best to teach your children – fully credentialed, experts in writing, art, and drama.

No matter where you live we can customize a program or your child to write his/her own PiggyBack Book!
