Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Laura Pastuszek
Remembering to spell words correctly can be a difficult task. Building spelling skills in the elementary school years is essential. Today, it is not popular to learn to spell correctly by memorization. Emphasis on fun is the "name of the game" when it comes to learning. Miss Pell teaches readers not to misspell by offering unique tips that are sure to improve spelling skills and help keep readers smiling in the process. The "Adventures in Memory" highlights how to memorize spelling facts using mnemonic devices for hard to spell words. Each page is filled with ideas on how to remember spelling tricky words. Characters on each page are humorous, and the illustrations help reinforce proper spelling and hold interest for the readers. The section about word usage is especially important as it helps with this difficult area containing so many grammar rules. Miss Pell helps to make homophones easier to understand by the plethora of examples. Although it may be overwhelming for readers to digest so much information at once, this is a great reference book with three specific language arts areas all contained in one book. There is also a glossary, more text and web resources and an index. This book is a great addition for a home or school library. Reviewer: Laura Pastuszek
