School Library Journal - School Library JournalGr 3-6-These basic guides do a good job of demystifying the English language, and they do so with a contemporary spin. The varied graphics and vibrant photographs reinforce the concepts and enhance comprehension. Colorful text boxes labeled "Quick Fact," "Definition," "Rule," "Hot Tip," and "Example"; exercises; and answer keys are also included. Similes makes real-world connections by way of jokes, everyday expressions, and popular songs. Brian P. Cleary's "Words Are CATegorical" series (Carolrhoda) uses Seuss-like humor and is accessible to younger students. These titles are more comprehensive and will be useful in classrooms and libraries.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
