Review: Breezier, Cheesier, Newest, and Bluest What Are Comparatives and Superlatives? by Brian P. Cleary, Author; Brian Gable, Illustrator


SUMMARY FROM NETGALLEY.COM:

What are comparatives and superlatives? After reading this book, you'll have a much clearer idea and will be the best at forming these descriptive words! Brian P. Cleary and Brian Gable explain how these forms of adjectives compare nouns, through the cleverest rhymes and illustrations that are sillier than ever. Each comparative or superlative word is printed in color for easier identification.
Breezier, Cheesier, Newest, and Bluest: What Are Comparatives and Superlatives? turns traditional grammar lessons on end. Read it aloud and share in the delight of the sense—and nonsense—of words.

MY TAKE:
What's not to like about educational children's books?

In Breezier, Cheesier, Newest, and Bluest, kids get to learn about comparatives and superlatives through examples and colorful illustrations.

The rhymes aren't as snappy as I would have liked, but they definitely explain comparatives and superlatives well. There are plenty of examples, and even exceptions to the usual way of forming comparatives and superlatives.

The illustrations may not look cute to all, but the coloring is gorgeous and will keep your child's attention.

Thanks to NetGalley and Millbrook Press for the e-ARC. Publication date of Breezier, Cheesier, Newest, and Bluest is on March 1, 2013.

THE GOOD:

  1. The coloring is pretty.
  2. Kids will learn a lot.
  3. It includes examples and exceptions, for maximum learning.

THE BAD:

  1. The illustrations may not appeal to every kid.

FAVORITE QUOTE/S:

Tallest is superlative.
You following my narrative?

READ IT IF:

  1. Your child is having a hard time learning superlatives.
  2. You're looking for educational children's books.
