Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum Atkins
Cleary presents conjunctions in rollicking rhyme in this latest book in the "Words are CATegorical" series about different parts of speech. The rhyme presents what conjunctions do and uses the conjunctions as it goes over the rules, such as using them to link verbs and combine sentences. It even touches on a common misconception—that conjunctions can't begin a sentence. Conjunction pairs such as either/or and conjunctions that have to do with time are explained. Everything a young grammar student would like to know—or will need to know—is presented in a comical way. Most of the conjunctions are highlighted in a different color. A note at the beginning of the text explains that a few conjunctions are not highlighted to challenge readers and see if they can figure them out. A textbook definition of a conjunction is also given on the dedication page. Recommended for school and classroom libraries. This would be an excellent tool for intermediate elementary Language Arts teachers. Reviewer: Marcie Flinchum Atkins
