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.

Review by Anyday Blessings
”The text of the book is entertaining, causing many giggles here. However, it is not “too” silly to lose the effect of teaching the eight parts of speech. On the contrary, I feel that the silliness helps to illustrate the power of word choice in communicating images to a reader.”Read the Review
This does a great job working on the different parts of speech. I had to laugh that my husband said he finally was starting to understand those more obscure parts of sentence formation with this 😂. Super colorful and cute. I’d recommend.
This book has been very helpful and I love all the colors and eye catching pages. My kids enjoy when we read it.
I love this book. It gives great explanations and examples of the parts of speech in a way that makes sense to my first grader. He enjoys reading it. Definitely helps reinforce what he's learning in language arts. He loves the game ideas at the end of each section.
We love the book layout. It's very colorful and eye-catching.
The "stories" make it easier and enjoyable for kids to understand parts of the sentence.
The only complaint we have is the binding of the book.
The pages come out too easily. Once a page is loose, the pages nearby tend to become loose as well.
And then you end up with a bunch of loose pages.
Oh dear, Tired Mama! We are so sorry your book is not holding up! It sounds like maybe you received a defective copy. We would love to help resolve this for you, if you would like to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is a fun way to learn nouns, adjectives and verbs.
