Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marcie Flinchum Atkins
Buzz Starr, a TV announcer for a car racing event, talks with a preteen Soapbox-Derby champion about prefixes. This early reader is fast-paced and includes mostly dialogue that makes it a quick read for a reluctant reader. The first chapter has Jeff, the Derby Champion, and Buzz Starr discussing what a prefix is. A "Track Tip" in sidebars indicates definitions of key words and common prefixes and their meanings. All words with prefixes are bold-faced for readers to quickly notice. The second chapter focuses on the race and utilizes a lot of words with prefixes throughout the text. "Track Tips" in this chapter focus on how a word can have prefixes and suffixes. The last chapter highlights words that seem to have prefixes, but are really just prefix look-alikes. The last few pages of the book includes definitions and examples of prefixes and suffixes, activities for reviewing the words, and an answer key for questions posed in the book. This book is part of the "Grammar All-Stars Kinds of Words" series. Reviewer: Marcie Flinchum Atkins
