A noteworthy review of Language Rules! from Library Media Connection on March 1, 2011

This impressive series tackles the usually humdrum mechanics of grammar using fun examples, silly sentences, and cute little monster artwork. Each book asks the ‘What is it?’ question, and after a brief example and definition, develops the part of speech through examples and exceptions. The parts of speech are highlighted by a rainbow of colors, making them easily distinguished from other words. Content does overlap in certain situations, such as the possessive forms of words which are found in the adjective and punctuation books. While the books don’t cover everything, they are perfect for young children. Through humor and clear and concise examples and sometimes mysterious world of grammar becomes so much easier to understand. Illustrations complement the text well, with silly characters in bright and lively colors speaking sentences using the parts of speech. Glossary. Websites. Index.
