Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Applying the picture book format to a book about adjectives is a novel approach to teaching children about a difficult concept. Teachers may find this an original way to introduce adjectives for a writing class. Children (with adult help) will find that the striking illustrations clearly demonstrate how adjectives work with nouns. An alligator's back is described as ridged and bumpy while a peacock's tail is colorful, big, and bright. A game is included to get children thinking creatively by coming up with adjectives for each letter of their name. The book also includes a glossary, an index, and places to find further information. The additional titles in the "Word Fun" series are listed on the final page. This is a good purchase for classrooms where creative writing is a strong part of the curriculum. 2006, Picture Window Books/Capstone Press, $ 23.93. Ages 7 to 10.

Gr 1-3-These concept books define the parts of speech and give examples of their usage. The examples are in capital letters and in a color different from the surrounding text. Bright acrylic illustrations will help younger children visualize each part of speech. They are full of movement and color and make the books inviting. These titles are excellent resources to use along with Ruth Heller's books on the parts of speech.-Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
