The cats show us just how handy the suffix is and how it works. “Suffixes are word parts / that are tacked on to a word. / You’ll find a suffix at the end / of farmer and preferred.” The root word is a light, peppy shade while the suffix is a darker one. As the zany CATegorical cats show us all kinds of words that have -ful, -less, -er, and -ness on the ends, we also are treated to an interesting two-page spread that visually shows us the connection between the root word and the suffix. One cat is pulling up carrots with words on them (root words) while another is stirring up a pot of soup in them where the carrots connect with the suffixes to create words. “The root word is the main word, / as in paint or skate or teach. / The suffix is the letters / that we see in back of each.” For example, the cat pulls up the word ‘skate’ and when he stirs it in the pot it becomes ‘skater.’
This CATegorical book on how to make and properly use suffixes is a marvelously fun way to learn English grammar. I’ve read several of the CATegorical books from those that teach easy ways to learn language concepts to the math books. I haven’t run up against any that I’ve felt are less than stellar and didn’t expect anything less from this one. The humorous, madcap illustrations mesh perfectly with the rhyming sequence of the “lessons,” something that makes this book into a perfect teaching tool. This is a series that children gravitate toward and in conjunction with fun homeschool or classroom activities will make this book into an excellent language learning resource. If you haven’t had the privilege of meeting any of the CATegorical cats, you just might want to take a look at the Words Are CATegorical series, a series you won’t regret buying!
