Written in a whimsical and conversational manner, Word Fun is a gentle introduction to the eight most significant parts of speech: nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, pronouns, conjunctions, interjections, and prepositions.
Word Fun's vivid and imaginative full-page illustrations will help even your younger children visualize each part of speech. Each colorful section includes a child-friendly definition, followed by plenty of examples in a story-like style. Every section ends with an activity to reinforce what was learned. A brief glossary and a few additional resources are also included. The goofy storylines and striking, full-of-movement illustrations in Word Fun make what would otherwise be a dull topic inviting.

We used this book 3x a week, and went through it several times through the year. I would read the same chapter 3x per week so that it would really stick. I thought the way they described parts of speech were so creative and fun. We also loved the game at the end of each chapter, and we had so much fun coming up with new and creative ways to play them. The illustrations are beautiful and fun as well!
My daughter loves this book. It's such a fun way to learn the different parts of a sentence. She has learned so much from this book.
The whole family loves to take a break from our school work and read this fun book while still learning. My seven year old and five year old both love it. I love the fun art work and the simple way to introduce grammar. Even dad learned something new.
This is such a fun book! The art is beautiful and I feel like it is a relaxed way to teach basic grammar.
I wish I had this as a kid. I love the way the types of words are presented. We have read this many times. I think every kid should have this one.
