I have written an MG fiction book about language. My original idea had been to write some non-fiction books about language for kids since there aren't any, at least none that I could find. I could find only grammar workbooks.
However, as I thought about how to write such I book, I concluded that it would be boring - even to kids who would be interested in the topic. I decided to make the books fiction.
The stories would cover various aspects of language through adventures a little girl has in Lingualand. The first book is about what language is and whether animals have language.
I am providing all this background in hopes that my question will make more sense. The main purpose of the books is to inform children about language in a fun way. In the first book, Anna wakes up unable to communicate with her father and brother. Their words sound like gibberish to each other. But Anna finds she is now able to talk to her dog, Chompsky, who takes her on a journey through a Translator Tree to a place called Lingualand. There she talks to bugs, bees, birds, and fish and as she does she learns about what language is. The characters are funny and there is some excitement in the middle of the story (an eagle picks her up and drops her in a lake).
The book is really meant to answer the question "What is language?" in a fun and interesting way. But I suppose the question in terms of a story would be "Will Anna find a way to communicate again with her family?"
Does that make sense?
