Synopsis: Presents the fundamental rules of grammar, covering sentence structure, parts of speech, common errors, and more.

From School Library Journal: Grade 3-7-A wonderful mix of grammar rules; literature lessons; and language-oriented craft projects, puzzles, and games. The handy volume contains chapters covering the parts of speech, sentences and punctuation, formal versus informal English and idioms, common errors, and vocabulary and spelling. Also included are lists of compound and hyphenated words, silent-letter words, pattern words, 240 common spelling words, and homographs and homonyms. There are several qualities that set this book apart from other grammar books. The text is easy to read and understand and uses an interesting and appealing mix of type fonts and sizes. Shaded sidebars list "Rules to Remember." Sentence examples are in a bold cursive while the wonderful excerpts from Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden, Jack London's The Call of the Wild, and Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer help students make connections between literature and grammar. Perhaps the most unique aspect of this book, however, are the 26 sections entitled "Practice Makes Perfect!" From making a papier-m?ch? fruit bowl filled with fruit, labeled with action verbs relating to preparing food, to making cartoons using homonyms, these inventive activities are sure to interest students and teachers and add a bit of fun to an otherwise routine subject.
