Format: Paperback
This book is very similiar in nature to First Language Lessons for the Well Trained Mind but adds a religious twist. It starts by devoting a section to learning the 8 parts of speech and goes on in later pages to tell about clauses, phrases and concludes with a glossary. I like the word origin part that tells how the English language came to be.

There are a few assignments for each section which is why I give it 4 stars. I would say that this is more a reference with a few assignments thrown in for practice.

If you are looking for a complete solution for a school year, look further like maybe Complete Book of Grammar & Punctuation from the complete book series.

If you are on the other hand looking for reference material to teach lanaguage arts then this is an excellent choice.

This is a great book and we highly recommend it but it has an answer key that is not included. We had to order the answer key from the publisher.

"Our Mother Tongue" is an excellent refresher for older students who already have a solid background in grammar. The exercises are brief, just long enough to remind students of what they already know. In addition to covering all of the basics of grammar, "Our Mother Tongue" also includes interesting sidebars about the history of the English language. The book does not cover composition, and punctuation is addressed only in an appendix to the book.

As much as I like "Our Mother Tongue," I would not recommend this book for students who do not already have a good foundation in grammar. Each lesson, while short, covers a lot of material. Students without a solid grammar foundation will need a slower-paced text with more practice exercises.

It's difficult for me to imagine anything from Nancy Wilson being mediocre. This book lives up to my expectations. I purchased this to brush up on my grammar skills and am finding it to be an excellent tool. Highly recommended!

There are many errors in the answer key. I was told this is a great overall book for grammar. It isn't. There is very little explanations or teaching.

Great grammar course. Mainly geared towards the older child but could probably use in later elementary years also. Lessons are short and sweet and to the point, not much fluff to them.
