Children's LiteratureSandcastle has created a series of books about the parts of speech that is intended to reach kindergarten and first graders. Nine pages of text in each of these second level books are limited to about ten words. Verbs are defined and each one is highlighted in blue ink. Skate, read, play and slide are some of the words featured in a small book that is just the right size to fit tiny hands. "We sit on the dock and fish all afternoon." is one entry. Across from the text is the picture of a dad fishing with his two boys. Photographs depict children carrying out the action of the sentences. An index categorizes words used in the book by their part of speech. The six books in the "Sentences" series would be useful in a classroom or for children learning English as a second language.
