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
The beautiful graphics make this an exciting reading activity.
My 7 yr old loves this book
This book combines the best grammar books for a quick review. It's a fun, engaging picture book full of grammar insights.
The full color pages in this book are gorgeous. It is also much longer than I expected, which was a pleasant surprise. It makes typically boring grammar rules much more inticing. My son and I both really enjoyed reading a few pages per sitting.
While this was originally bought for my 6 year old to help encourage reading, my 3 year old also really loves it.
