Full Text Reviews:
School Library Journal - 11/01/2013 Gr 3–4—Parts of speech are introduced and defined in this series. However, the volumes could be confusing for their target audience as examples are not easy to identify on the pages. Bright pink "Figure It Out" text boxes ask readers to test their newly acquired knowledge (e.g., "How would you describe the differences between the verbs 'walk,' 'strut,' and 'plod'?"). Answers are in the back of the books. The texts are dense on the pages, which might make independent reading difficult. Blue captions unsuccessfully attempt to connect the stock photographs to the subject matter. There is too much happening on every page, and without a theme or unifying connection, these titles lack cohesion. - Copyright 2013 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
