Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Denise Daley
Can a book about adjectives really be fun and interesting? This one is! In each section, a particular type of adjective is explained in two to five sentences of large-font text. An accompanying sentence in a smaller font provides an example, with the adjective italicized, while a corresponding photograph engages the reader with a vibrant and captivating image. Author Riggs covers common adjectives, proper adjectives, article pointers, adjectives made from verbs, and adjectives ending in —er and —est. The vocabulary is basic, making this topic quite easy to understand. Additionally, the visually-engaging format ensures young readers want to learn about adjectives. Teachers will want to use this book to introduce or reinforce understanding about this basic form of grammar. The book concludes with a fun activity, similar to a Mad Lib. Readers can test their knowledge by filling in the blanks of a story with adjectives of their choice. This book is part of the "Grammar Basics" series. Reviewer: Denise Daley
