Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dianne Ochiltree
From the author of the best-selling Words Are CATegorical, comes a brand-new picture book about a grammatical concept that we all use but do not often stop to contemplate: the interjection. Brian P. Cleary's playful rhyming text incorporates commonly-heard interjections as well as explanations of how and why they are used in these sentences in a way that makes it easy for young readers to understand. Dear me, the kids won't mind learning grammar! Brian Gable's humorous illustrations of the funny situations set up in the text do much to make a reader smile while making the use of interjections crystal clear His comical cast of cats act out every scenario with great expression, energy and cartoonish delight. Grownups rest assured: although the approach is very contemporary and kid-friendly, the educational value of what is being taught between the covers is strictly ?old school'. Mr. Cleary has lots of experience in this area, as he is the author of numerous titles in other educationally-oriented series for young readers, such as Math is CATegorical, Food is CATegorical, Adventures in Memory and Sounds Like Reading. A great selection for homeschoolers, libraries and schools. Reviewer: Dianne Ochiltree
