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
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 email@example.com
It is a fun way to learn nouns, adjectives and verbs.
Love this book! It has been very helpful in the classroom. We love how fun and colorful this book is. We would highly recommend it.
A gentle, yet fun, way to introduce the parts of speech to a child. We have read through these several times.
A beautiful book with fun illustrations that will keep language arts entertaining.
