Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 2-4-Another of the author's rhyming romps through parts of speech, this book offers a nearly nonsensical look at the role of adverbs. Illustrated with colorful and daft felines and other creatures that have a suspicion of the manic energy of the Cat in the Hat, plus a befuddled walrus that is "Brilliantly burgundy, shockingly old," the text informs readers about adverbs of manner, frequency, description, place, time, and number. The words themselves are highlighted in colored print, with companion explanations: "Adverbs tell us when and how,/Like, quickly do your homework, now." The energy and sheer razzmatazz of the text and graphics will have young grammarians entranced. Pair Cleary's titles with Ruth Heller's titles, including Up, Up and Away: A Book about Adverbs (Grosset & Dunlap, 1991), for solid and engaging instruction in the basics of language.

Can the topic of adverbs be colorful, interesting....dare I say it? Fun? Apparently Brian P. Cleary and his innovative cat-loving illustrator Brian Gable think so! Not only does Cleary explain this difficult part of speech to grade schoolers with a rhyming, lively verse, my college sophomore is not above consulting this WORDS ARE CATEGORICAL series for the lessons within. You've done it again, Brian and Brian!

These books are so good at helping kids learn the parts of speech. They give so many clear examples of sentences, with the specific part of speech in a different color so everyone will notice it. I used these in a classroom during english class and they all loved it. A+ to this book!

This book is a welcome addition to this collection. I use these books all the time to teach language. I also use the math ones whenever possible. They have silly illustrations and a cute rhyming format. I would definitely buy any books from this series!

I use this series of books throughout the school year in third grade before jumping into the parts of speech. They are a fun and engaging way to start off a lesson.

Format: Hardcover
Cleary's "Words are CATegorical" series aims to teach young students the parts of speech; and language devices such as simile, and metaphor through humor, rhyme, creative story telling, and a zany group of animals.

The Adverb book takes on the rather expansive part of speech that seems to be found everywhere. Young elementary school students will enjoy the cast of wacky characters as they learn about adverbs. Throughout the Cleary grammar series, the format is the same. The definition is stated right off the bat, and then the story is simply one adverb example after another, with colored text to emphasize each adverb used. `Adverbs', does a fantastic job in breaking down what adverbs describe (when, how, where, how often, how much) in a sentence.

All in all, this book is a great instructional tool to get kids thinking, and to start grammar instruction off with interest and fun.

This book is great. It is fun and has a Dr. Seuss type feel to it. It is great for reinforcing word types to children.
