Perfect for introductory grammar lessons! What is a noun?
Explore language and discover the uses of nouns and their many grammatical forms from proper nouns to common nouns to abstract nouns.
“Heller explores types of nouns: common, proper, abstract, concrete, compound, collective, singular, plural, and possessive... Its lush, exuberant full-color artwork will grab kids' attention.”—Booklist
“With humor, style, and succinct, admirable precision, Heller summarizes everything most people will ever need to know about this particular area of grammar. ... A treasure.”—Kirkus Reviews
“To say that Heller has a way with words is to understate a multifaceted talent... The rhymed text of this book is as witty and smooth as its predecessors ... Rarely does a book offer children so much to look at, listen to and learn.”—Publishers Weekly
“Striking graphic design with large clear objects in bold colors overflowing each double-page spread make the book a visual treat. The use of bold type for all the nouns is particularly pleasing and will make for easy reading aloud... Those who have found the others in the series successful will want this one.”—School Library Journal
