Written whimsically and conversationally, 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.
Cover one of the 8 parts of speech every week, putting you through the entire book four times this year or until your child is comfortable with the name and role of each word.

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.”
