Editorial Reviews

In the "Know-Nonsense" Guide to Honing Writing Skills round-up: Heidi Fiedler’s The Know-Nonsense Guide to Grammar: An Awesomely Fun Guide to the Way We Use Words! (Walter Foster, Apr. 2017; Gr 3-6) is designed for students who may need just an extra push when it comes to grammar (“This book tackles key concepts that are introduced in school, but might be confusing the first time around….”). Three sections focus on different parts of speech, general grammar rules, and common literary devices.The text, in conjunction with Brendan Kearney’s soft and rounded cartoon illustrations, uses humor to make potentially complex concepts comprehensible. For instance, the spread on alliteration features a “happy hedgehog” that “has a huge house” and the entry for adjectives stars a band of brave pirates. With large font, consistent layouts, and friendly artwork, this is an accessible resource for kids who are looking to build on or strengthen their grammar skills, either at home or in the classroom. - Della Farrell, School Library Journal
