Humpties: Parts of Speech with "Eggceptional" Personalities.
First in a series of books that illustrate the functions of words in sentences, this book uses cartoon characters (a different "Humpty" for each part of speech) to help make learning grammar easier by associating an abstract concept with a visual image. The book introduces each part of speech and offers practice pages where students can reinforce the concepts by placing the appropriate Humpty under each part of speech in sample sentences. The book discusses nouns, verbs, conjunctions, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, and interjections. Supplementary activities, numerous copies of the various Humpty characters, and answers to exercises are attached. (RS)
