How to Teach Your Dragon Proper Grammar

*Disclosure:  I received a free pdf copy of the grammar book in order to facilitate this review.  My opinions are my own.  I only review books I believe my readers would be interested in. 

You may have seen your last dangling participle or misused comma in the kingdom. Childrens’ writer Diane Mae Robinson has created a fun and easy way for any young grammar dragon in training to learn the often difficult and, dare I say, tedious rules of English grammar.  As an English/Language Art teacher knows our students usually begin breathing fire when we bring up polishing our grammar sword skills.  Robinson’s book will be the faithful companion all our young grammar dragons need.

What will you find in the book?  You will find chapters organized by the most common grammar mistakes.  Topics range from understanding confusing words to proper use of quotation marks and brackets for a total of 10 chapters.  That is a lot of grammar rules to cover.  What makes this book different is the way Robinson uses her characters from her The Pen Pieyu Series to explain and provide examples.  She has made it easily digestible for a late elementary to a middle-grade student.  In addition to the chapters devoted to explaining the rules, Robinson has also provided a level 1 and 2 test for the little grammar dragons to practice their skills.

If you are interested in The Pen Pieyu Series I have a review of book 3 from a few years ago. Sir Princess Petra and her trusty sidekick, Snarls the Dragon, set off on an adventure to save Petra’s knighthood.  Sir Princess Petra will need her smarts, problem-solving skills, and compassion to succeed.

This book will make for a great educational resource in any classroom, homeschool or just for any moms and dads helping their young kids with revisions at home.
