School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—These books offer traditional grammar lessons, incorporating definitions and utilizing exercises on how to find and identify the various parts of speech. The paragraphs to read and review share a common theme, which adds to the educational value of the series. New terms are followed by an exercise to help reinforce the concepts. Instruction emphasizes sight reading, reading aloud, and writing. Readers are asked to keep a notebook and follow the exercises. However, no answers are provided, so students might need someone to check their work. Each section is clearly labeled and a nice selection of color and black-and-white photographs breaks up the texts. Oddly, the books all state that there are five parts of speech, having excluded prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. Also, all of the books listed for further research are Weigl publications. Still, these books might be good choices for students who seek structured exercises. ESL or literacy students might enjoy the grammar lessons while learning about American and world cultures.—June Shimonishi, Torrance Public Library, CA
