A noteworthy review of English Grammar from School Library Journal on November 1, 2019
This series takes a deep dive into the mechanics of language, from pronouns to punctuation to similes and metaphors. Each volume uses entertaining and often humorous examples of the grammatical concept, which is highlighted with colorful text so that readers can see it used authentically and in context. Photographs that support the different examples and bold graphics are a prominent part of the page layout. There are also interactive prompts for students to apply and practice what they have learned. Titles are very thorough in describing each topic and its relationship to other grammatical and spelling rules; as a result, their extended text length and more complex topics may be too arduous for struggling readers. VERDICT While a solid and comprehensive exploration of the English language, this series, written at a third grade reading level, may not be accessible for a hi-lo audience but for beginning readers.
