Children's LiteratureChildren may no longer diagram sentences, but it is still useful to understand the tools needed to create a sentence. This series features a separate title on each of the key parts of a sentence—nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, conjunctions, interjections, prepositions and pronouns. While they are not likely to be read cover to cover by individual children, they are perfect for group reading as a class embarks on a writing assignment. The layout is colorful and simple, with the appropriate words highlighted. Eye-catching photographs offer an opportunity for children to call out answers or come up with high-interest adjectives. The cover features a teenage girl with spiky hair and gigantic hands because of the unusual perspective of the photo. This book covers comparative and superlative adjectives, the difference between "fewer" and "less", "they're" and "their," articles and nouns that act like adjectives (computer games, family car). The examples are easy to laugh about and therefore remember: "That's my frog! That's her frog! That's your frog!" The series is thorough, easy to understand, and often fun in its effort to "untangle the complicated rules" of the English language. 2004, The Child's World, Ages 5 to 7.
