Reading Teacher at John C. Myers Elementary School
in this series)
I am actually recommending this entire series of books for teaching students parts of speech such as nouns, verbs, prefixes, suffixes, etc. in a story-type, easily understood format. I was actually introduced to these books by a student, who found them in the library and brought them to me so very excited because, "this is what we are talking about in class!" After reading the book to my small group Reading group, several of the kids commented "Oh, I get it now!" Music to a teacher's ears! Makes a hazy concept concrete to the students in a most enjoyable manner!
The fact that this is a short, colorful picture book makes it ideal for mini-lesson or as an introduction to the concept.
