Slide and Slurp, Scratch and Burp:
More About Verbs
written by Brian Cleary
illustrated by Brian Gable
Building on the previous book about verbs (To Root, To Toot, To Parachute), this book delivers even more examples of verbs and is full of the zany illustrations fans of the series have come to expect.
works definitions and information about verbs into his rhyming text so
that students sometimes don't even realize that they are actually
listening to a definition. :)
For example: "Each sentence
has a subject--it's kind of like the star. It's what the whole thing is
about: Dave's dish, Mom's look, Todd's car. Subjects always need a
verb--it's what makes fishes swim, and lanterns light and writers write
and clippers cut and trim."
There is no duplication between the two books, so teachers who have the first verb book and would like additional material about teaching verbs will be glad to get this one too!

are two spreads from inside
the book. Those familiar with the series will certainly recognize this
format. The page just prior to this first one said "Verbs give sentences their
action." These pages then give examples of what that means.
