Although the book was intended for fourth and fifth grades, I am using it with my third grade homeschooled student. I had been teaching him grammar by integrating it into his writing and spelling work, but I was a little concerned that I might be leaving something out. I had wanted a simple book that I could use to fill in the gaps. This little book helps keep me on track. It is a little high for him, so we work through it together. The lessons are short, and sometimes we just talk about them. I am only going through Part I and Part III with him--the concepts presented in the section on syntax are a little high for third grade.

The book is divided into three sections. Part I is an introduction to sentence-making and parts of speech. It also includes things like abbreviations, contractions, and how to use quotation marks. The sections are short, and they include definitions and exercises. It includes a bit of composition, occasionally asking students to write paragraphs and stories from pictures. Some of the information is new and challenging, and much of it is a nice review from second grade.

Part II is different. It is written more like a traditional grammar, such as what you would see in a Latin Grammar of the same period. For example, the Noun section covers these topics: Gender, Person, Number, Case, Declension, and Parsing. The section on Verbs covers things like Mood, Tense, Voice, Person, and Number. So in this way, Harvey's Grammar is a real "Grammar", not just a workbook with a few punctuation and usage exercises.

Part III is a rather short chapter on punctuation. It has definitions, but very few exercises.

Besides the feel of the book (which is nice) it matches our McGuffy's readers perfectly! :) We have the hardcover copy. It is easy to read. It is also required for our son's schoolbook, Classic Curriculum Writing Series 4 Book 1 and probably for books 2, 3, and 4 also.

I absolutely love this book! My son and I do the lessons verbally after Reading because he loathes paperwork. After the lesson we use the book we are reading for additional practice. Usually we will pick a paragraph or two and he will point out proper/common nouns or singular/plural nouns - whatever we are working on at the time. I just love this book and I feel confident he (and I) will have a very thorough understanding of grammar when we are done. I also purchased the teachers guide but I have not had to use it yet.
