Another Book Review
I recently read Doggie Day Camp; Verb and Adverb Adventures by Cynthia Reeg.
The first part of the book is a story that will appeal to young kids, especially those going to school for the first time who might identify with Bubba's nervousness about being left at the day camp for dogs. Those children will probably pick up some information about grammar, too.
Older kids will learn a lot about grammar while they have fun with the games and puzzles in the study guide, which makes the book appropriate for use in educational situations.
The cute illustrations by Kit Grady will appeal to kids of both ages.
It's unusual to find a picture book that can reach such a wide age range of children and this is just one of several in a series that teaches about different parts of speech.
