To Root, to Shoot, to Parachute:
What is a Verb
written by Brian Cleary
illustrated by Jenna Prosmitsky
For children who believe learning grammar can't be fun, here's something fresh to consider: a sparkling look at verbs that might just change their minds.
Cleary's energy and sunny choice of words make the book lively and delightfully bright, a feeling reinforced by the action- packed illustrations scattered across the pages.
Children can use the
book in class or at home. The author proves once again that
"educational" doesn't have to mean dumpy and dull. -Booklist
