Basher Basics - Grammar. Write Here, Write Now.
*With its lively, creative approach, this is a unique and highly memorable one-stop guide to using language clearly, expressively and correctly. Each grammar basic from parts of speech to sentence components to groupings and agreements is represented by its own character, who explains in their own words what makes them tick and how they are used. Plenty of practical advice will help every child unravel the rules and regulations of the English language.
Another book from the Basher range of books. This book is based on Grammar and contains chapters on: Punctuation; What's the Word?; Team Sentence; Me and My Shadow; and Friends United. Each page contains a clear Do and Don't, with easy to remember wording. As with the other Basher book i have reviewed, the book is full of cartoon images and the text is all written as if spoken by the subject. I think this style is easier for children to understand, however I think it is better for older children (Key Stage 2+). The grammar rules are written in an interesting, but informative way and in a way in which can be easily remembered. They are written in an almost story way. A unique idea which I think could be used with people who are finding it difficult to understand grammar rules.
Thank you to the publishers, Kingfisher, for sending me the book to review.
