To Root, to Toot, to Parachute

New or Used: $11.00
What is a verb? It's easier to show than explain! In this fun and animated introduction to grammar, rhyming verse is used to creatively clarify the concept of verbs. Chock-full of colorful, lively examples, the playful rhymes and illustrations of comical cartoon cats combine to hightlight key words in the sentences. Verbs like toss and tumble, jump and jam, jog and juggle, and jig and leap are printed in color for easy identification.
Product Details


Gr 2-5-Humorous rhymes present a simple overview of a part of speech that can be quite complex, and the accompanying slapstick cartoons of cavorting cats provide just the right touch of cheeky humor. Together, they painlessly teach a grammar lesson about a word that shows action or being. Ruth Heller's Kites Sail High (Grosset & Dunlap, 1988) is richly illustrated but much harder to understand. To Root, to Toot explains verbs without using terms such as: subjunctive, imperative and indicative mood, active and passive voice, tense, regular and irregular. After reading Cleary's book, young students should be able to answer the question, "What is a verb?" Useful for any collection.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
