Great Book Nov 2, 2008
Great Book...my kids love them. I wish that these books had been around when I was a kid. This book is fun and has a Dr. Seuss feel to it. Great for reinforcing the parts of speech to kids...
Can't recommend highly enough Jan 8, 2007
This book taught my 4 year old what nouns were. I read it for her older brother, but they both picked up on the concept. The rhymes are silly, so it keeps their attention, and they really get it by the end of the book.
I also recommend the others in the series - To Root, To Toot, To Parachute:What is a Verb?; Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What is an Adjective? We don't have the latest ones, but I'm sure they're just as good.
After reading the other reviews, I want to check out other series that this author has done.
Great Jul 19, 2005
This book was great. It was too young for my 8yr old but just right for the 6yr old.
A Mink, a Fink, a Skating Rink: What Is a Noun? Dec 12, 2004
My five year old daughter loves this book! Prosmitsky's colorful illustrations make it so much more fun learning the parts of speech. My daughter adores the illustrator's goofy pillow-like cats!
All Primary Teachers Could Use This! Oct 26, 2000
As a teacher of third graders, I've used this book and "Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What is an Adjective" to teach and delight my students, and to take some of the tedium out of parts of speech. Within a day or so of introducing these books, all 27 of my group knew the difference between the major parts of speech. We found out that Mr. Cleary has a website, and I printed out some word-building worksheets off it for free, and a took away a couple of suggestions on how integrate teaching nouns with a fun art project, called the noun quilt, in which each letter of the alphabet has a noun, as in B, BOOT, C, CAT and the students draw the item and eventually it becomes this big old paper quilt full of nouns. His publisher assures me that TO ROOT, TO TOOT, TO PARACHUTE: WHAT IS A VERB? will be in soon, and it's a no-brainer that I'll get that as well.
