The Scoop on Good Grammar
If the rules of English grammar and punctuation have always baffled you, then you're in for a real treat! In this photo-filled book, each chapter focuses on a particular aspect of culture: exploration, art and invention, food, sports, classic movies and TV, poetry, and travel. Every example-packed lesson is paired with one of our favorite things—from baseball to bagels—to make learning fun and easy! For example, in Chapter 2 (Art & Invention), Renoir's "Luncheon of the Boating Party" will help you sail through the definition of a noun. And in Chapter 3 (Food), cupcakes will help you discover the many delightful ways in which words are used as adjectives.
When you look inside the book, one of the first things you'll notice is a photo of a scoop of ice cream on every quiz page. (Learning should be a sweet experience.) Next, you'll see a helpful table of contents, lots of sample words and sentences, beautiful photographs and illustrations, engaging practice questions and answers, and fun facts throughout. Finally, you'll peruse the comprehensive index and realize just how quickly and easily it will be able to guide you to the answers you're searching for. For ages 12 to adult.
