SAMPLE BOOK PUNCH WRITING PROMPTS
In the story, Amanda has to make a very important decision for herself and her sister and brother. Amanda's decision, to search for her father in America, was one that changed the lives of the children forever. We make many decisions each day. Most of them are not as enormous as Amanda's, but they are important to us. For example, we may decide to try to reach a particular goal or to try to do something challenging.
