This colorful book offers information about conjunctions and examples of how they work, all in easy-to-read rhymes, beginning with, Conjunctions are connecting words like but or and or or. Printed in color, each conjunction stands out from the other, black words in the text. Meanwhile, the cartoon-style artwork depicts brightly colored, catlike creatures in human dress dramatizing a variety of situations. The high-energy illustrations rev up the comic intensity of the lightly humorous verse and promise to engage children in the subject. Though the Words Are CATegorical series has tackled some topics (nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives) more than once, this is its first book presenting conjunctions. An amusing addition to classroom lessons on parts of speech. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Library Binding edition.

There are some rules that people think are absolute, such as never using a conjunction to start a sentence, "But I say that's absurd," spouts out the professor at a grammar convention. He's got that big red book of Grammar Myths to prove his point. And everyone in the audience seemed to understand and carried him on their shoulders as they cheered. In this book you will learn all about conjunctions, the rules and the myths and how to use them.
This is a marvelous and fun way to supplement and enhance the traditional grammar lesson and make it FUN! Brian Cleary's ingenious rhyming schemes in his CATegorical books make learning grammar much easier, especially for the reluctant student who `just doesn't get it.' Each conjunction is highlighted in color, which makes them easy to spot throughout the book. The cats, needless to say, are always a bit zany and some of the sentences in this book will make everyone chuckle. This series of books will make a perfect addition to any homeschool OR classroom shelves!
