As teachers, we can attest that teaching contractions can be very challenging ... but If You Were a Contraction can help. With the same funky illustrations as the other books in the series and lots of examples, this is a solid basic introduction.
We are baffled that these books aren't more well known because they really are great for teaching! Booklist said, "Vibrantly colored, full-page illustrations, and a whimsical layout combine to offer children an accessible introduction to grammar."
