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 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 any 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 you will 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 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.

January time again everyone!  That means Multicultural Children’s Book Day and Family Literacy Day here in Canada (same day) happens on January 27th.  It is a milestone for the Multicultural Children’s Book Day event as this year marks its 5th year.  What better way to celebrate family literacy then encouraging and promoting multicultural books.  There is so much to discuss that this post usually ends up being a long one, so grab your favourite drink and enjoy.  Multicultural Children’s Book Day was started and continues to flourish with the passion and dedication of its founders, Valarie Budayr and Mia Wenjen.  The growing popularity of the event is significant to the book industry as it highlights the importance and value we all as readers and consumers of children’s books place on increasing the diversity in the selection available for us to read. Let’s fill our bookshelves with more diverse books. (more…)

New Halloween Favourites From Raincoast Books

It wasn’t so long ago it was my little ones first Halloween and I remember the cuteness of those first few years.  Ok, more like 10 years ago now. I dressed my boys in a cute lion suit their first Halloween and my eldest was a penguin when he was two. Today I would like to introduce you and your little reader to some New Halloween favourites from Raincoast books. I wish I had had a cute non-spooky book like Herbert’s First Halloween by author Cynthia Rylant to introduce some of the traditions of Halloween to my kids. For older kids How To Catch A Monster by Adam Wallace is a funny ninja adventure where the young ninja sets out to catch a monster from his/her closet. It is also another in his series of How to Catch… Last year I reviewed How to Catch an Elf you can view that review here. (more…)

THE HANGING GIRL BY EILEEN COOK

BOOK REVIEW

When I found out that Eileen Cook had a new book being released I jumped at the chance to receive an advanced readers copy to devour on my summer vacation.  Nothing like a good psychological thriller while relaxing by the pool or chilling on the beach.  Last year, I read With Malice and was fascinated by the twist and turns through out the novel to discover the truth. However, I was also fascinated by the choices the main character made at the end of the novel.  You can read that review here.  The Hanging Girl by Eileen Cook delves into female adolescent intrigue with an ending that left me with my mouth slightly gaping open wondering about the choices and motivations made by the main character.
