School Library Journal Review

Gr 3-6-Four parts of speech are brought to life in a way that makes sense of the occasionally mystifying world of grammar. Simple, straightforward sentences outline the basic definitions and rules of usage, and then introduce more complex descriptions such as dangling prepositions and predicate adjectives. Explanations are clear and concise with many examples of sentences that are both grammatically correct and incorrect. Short exercises for practice are included both within the texts and at the end of the books. Bright, color photographs and bold typefaces on a white background make for an easy-to-read and focused format. While the books impart plenty of important information, they have the feel of a textbook, which can be off-putting to a general audience. These are titles that may be best used by classroom teachers within the context of grammar lessons. Ruth Heller's Many Luscious Lollipops (1989) and Kites Sail High (1988, both Grosset & Dunlap) are more visually engaging, and with rhyming, flowing texts they will have a much stronger draw to younger readers.-Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA (c) Copyright 2010.
