I received an ARC of this book through NetGalley.

This is the newest book in the Words Are CATegorical series of books. I have used these books in my classroom in the past, and the kids love the rhythm and rhyme, as well as the funny pictures. This book continues on the path of the previous books in the series. It will make reviewing comparatives and superlatives fun for them. I love how these books can be used with multiple grade levels. When you are introducing a grammar concept, these books ma

This book is a fun way to teach grammar concepts to kids. The wacky illustrations and quirky rhymes will surely bring a smile and educate at the same time. My kids read the book aloud and tried making up more comparatives and superlatives as they read the book – it showed me that they caught on to the concept very well as soon as they read the book. A helpful chart provided at the end of the book describes how to form more of these words.
This is a good addition to your personal library as well a

We really enjoy the books by this author. He makes learning fun, and this is a silly and humorous rhyming book about comparatives and superlatives.

The illustrations are cartoony and cute, too - we love the cats.

I love this series of books. They provide simple grammar lessons with fun rhymes, pictures and text. This one provides a simple overview of the rules used when making adjectives into comparatives and superlatives. It doesn't serve as a sole explanation for all of the rules and exceptions, but is a great introduction for more formal grammar lessons. It could be read to kindergartners as a foundation for their language skills, and definitely used in early elementary.

Once again another great categorical book. It's filled with vivid and engaging pictures to clarify an enforce the text. Rhyming text makes it easy to read and the flow works well for reading out loud.

Breezier would make a great book to introduce some of the crazy rules that the English language has in any elementary school classroom. This title would especially be helpful in an ESOL classroom.
