Reviews - What do customers think about Hairy, Scary, Ordinary: What Is an Adjective? (Words Are Categorical)?

OK, but not great  Dec 26, 2008
This book is helpful in giving examples of adjectives in a rhyming light-hearted way that teaches a little as it mildly entertains. But I did not think it all that educational, and for $6.95 it seemed very short. A better teaching aid is MadLibs, not the dumbed-down Junior MadLibs, but just MadLibs, which I have found extremely effective in teaching the differences between adjectives, nouns, etc.
Adjectives  Jul 3, 2008
One of my all time favorite instructional tools ... the kids really remember adjectives based on this book!
Informative but Vulgar  Mar 9, 2008
I bought this book online because it was recommended as a good book to teach adjectives. While it had a multitude of adjectives, I found that it also reinforced the word stupid. While the word was used in the context of the sentence "They tell us that shows are stupid or funny," I hesitate in teaching my students that stupid is an acceptable word to use in any situation. Other then that, I found the book to be colorful, full of content and entertaining.
Nouns Plus  Mar 30, 2007
While the book is intended to introduce the concept of nouns, its use can also be extended to teach new vocabulary, rhyming, and classifying. The book is content-rich, and several readings and explanations may be needed.

My only quibble is that while the text (font and format) is cute, it is not very child-friendly.
Great!  Jan 15, 2006
This is a fun book to read. My son is 6 and he enjoys the delighful pictures along with its creativity. This has truly helped him better grasp the understanding of adjectives. Now when we discuss sentences and structure, he has many excellent references about adjectives.

Well worth the money!
