Gr. 1-3. In this volume in the If You Were series, a picture-book format; vibrantly colored, full-page illustrations; and a whimsical layout combine to offer children an accessible introduction to grammar. Simple phrases, accompanied by striking, highly textured pictures of animals--from howler monkeys to Arctic foxes--demonstrate the use of adjectives. For example, following a brief definition of noun, the text goes on to read, "An elephant is a noun. If you were an adjective, you would tell us about the elephant. The GRAY elephant is GIGANTIC^B and WET." Comparative, proper, and superlative adjectives, printed in large, colorful display type, stand out from the main handprinted-style text. Though some additional explanation from an adult may be needed, the art is a delight, and the peppy prose and familiar examples will help the lesson slide down easily. An activity (find an adjective for each letter of child's name), a brief glossary, and a few additional resources, conclude. Shelle Rosenfeld
