Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Valerie Burleigh
Each volume of the Sharpen Your Writing Skills series begins with an attractive front cover showing a diversity of young adults that will appeal to the intended audience, as well as a boxed checklist identifying which skills will be found in that particular volume. The table of contents is written in a large easy-to-read font and sets the tone for the remainder of the book. The easy-to-read text will appeal to readers and each chapter has clearly defined sections, engaging pictures of cartoon pencils giving pointers and tips to the reader, as well as engaging graphics. Each volume has a glossary, further reading section, internet addresses section, and an index. In Sharpen Your Good Grammar Skills, the various parts of speech are discussed for most of the book, followed up by a chapter on punctuation and proofreading. Students may prefer chapter five's common grammar goofs and commonly misspelled words. This six-volume series will offer support for a language arts curriculum by complimenting or reinforcing lessons presented to students in the specific areas. The writing style remains consistent throughout the series and the layout is appealing. (Sharpen Your Writing Skills). Reviewer: Valerie Burleigh
Children's Literature - Denise Hartzler
Jennifer Rozines Roy breaks down the parts of speech into manageable segments that will be easily absorbed. Beginning with an explanation of the parts of speech—nouns, verbs, prepositions, interjections and more—Roy then walks readers through how to combine the basic parts of speech to create different kinds of sentences. From a simple sentence to more complex, the information is broken down into manageable segments for the struggling student. Once readers have finished understanding how to create sentences, Roy introduces them to using the right parts of speech in the right way. There are chapters devoted to proofreading, proper punctuation, commonly misused words, misspelled words and a glossary providing readers with a quick glance and reference. In this easy to use book students are ensured to get the help and assistance they need but do not necessarily understand on their own. Using her experience as an editor and former teacher, Roy has written a book that will help students who are struggling with grammar. In today's world where teachers are working with smaller budgets and standardized tests, this book will give both parents and teachers a supportive tool for helping their children learn good grammar. Part of the "Sharpen Your Writing Skills" series. Reviewer: Denise Hartzler
