Product Description:

This introductory reference guide will appeal to your pictorial learner. First, you'll get a good beginning grammar overview (parts of speech--including noun and verb phrases, active/passive voice, clauses, conjunctions, direct speech, and confusing words). Parts of speech are identified with text, arrows and colors, though inconsistently applied (Nouns are not always green, for example). Explanations are brief and accented with graphs and cartoon drawings. The second section covers punctuation (periods, commas, question and quotation marks, apostrophes, and those funky and elusive parentheses, dashes, hyphens and ellipses). Finally, get a thumbnail introduction to style (basic genres, sentence- and paragraph level improvements). The book includes a glossary, quiz, and index. Also, access to Quicklinks provides grammar, punctuation and spelling games, quizzes and puzzles. An attention-grabbing way to introduce or remind students of grammar skills. 136 pgs, reinforced sc. ~ Ruth

This book is visually appealing, and has solid information. I knew my upper-elementary aged child would happily read it.

Good buy...
Very helpful. Easy to understand teaching on grammar. We also use as a grammar dictionary of sorts when we don't understand something in other grammar books.
