Children's LiteratureApplying 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.
