If You Were a Contraction
(Word Fun series)


written by Trisha Shasken; illustrated by Sara Gray

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."

Interest Level:  Grade 1-3               Lexile Measure: 350L

Below are the first two spreads from inside the book--showing the illustration style and the Language Arts lesson.
