Kites Sail High:
A Book About Verbs 


by Ruth Heller

This book covers a lot of ground, starting with defining verbs and then moving into active and passive verbs, verb phrases... In our opinion it covers way too much ground, starting very simply and ending with advanced verb concepts that will surely "sail" over the heads of kids.

Because of this, we don't personally use this book in our classrooms, but fans of Ruth Heller will surely want to know this book in the World of Language series exists.
