Whimsical, lyrical, poetic and beautiful are all words that describe Ruth Heller's series of World of Language. I'm excited to share this series of books for this week's mentor text linky with Collaboration Cuties , Stacia and Amanda!
Books in the series:
Behind the Mask - A Book About Prepositions
Merry-Go-Round - A Book about Nouns
A Cache of Jewels and Other Collective Nouns
Mine, All Mine-A Book about Pronouns
Fantastic! Wow! And Unreal - A Book about Interjections and Conjunctions
Kites Sail High - A Book about Verbs
Many Luscious Lollipops - A Book about Adjectives (My very first book in the series!)
Up, Up, and Away - A Book about Adverbs
This is a great app to go along with the series. It is much like refrigerator magnets, only better!
