Booklist Review

Volumes in the Language Rules! series take on adverbs, conjunctions, pronouns, and more, but is there any part of speech more enjoyable than interjections? As the bratty kid brother of the language family, interjections get all the fun exclamations Yikes! Drat! Shhh! Wham! all words well suited to McGeehan and Moore's gallery of horned, spiked, beaked, clawed, multi-eyed, and fabulously colored monsters, who cavort across the pages illustrating each principle. For example, Heinrichs discusses the prevalence of exclamation points, and a pink blob shouts, Hey! Get that monkey off my head! Some interjections, writes Heinrichs, are happy ( Golly! Yum! ); some are unhappy (nothing harsher here than Nuts! ); some just take up space ( Well, Um ); and watch out! some are actually verbs ( Help! Look! ). Particularly interesting is the idea that interjections might have been the earliest human speech though it probably did not include, as the illustration suggests, Whoopee! Bouncy, amusing, educational, and cleverly laid out, this is a great go-to resource to supplement dry language texts. Brief additional readings, a glossary, and an index close.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Heinrichs has taken her "The Magic of Language" series (The Child's World, 2004), geared to grades 3-6, and packaged it for the lower elementary grades. The books are well organized and attractive, and inject humor into what might otherwise be fairly dry subjects. The font is large and changes appropriately in terms of boldness and color to create emphasis. The brightly colored cartoon illustrations are amusing and clearly demonstrate whatever part of speech is being explored. A purple-and-green monster levitates off his chair after spotting a mouse beneath it in Interjections-"Eeek!"-while a smiling elephant being hoisted in the air by balloons declares, "I'm as light as a feather" in Similes. The humor packed into the artwork will make these books attractive to browsers, not just teachers looking for material to reinforce their lesson plans. Between this series and Brian P. Cleary's fine titles, the 400s may get some action.-Grace Oliff, Ann Blanche Smith School, Hillsdale, NJ (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
