{CLOSED} Sweet Critique: Reader’s Digest Grammar Books

I love grammar.  Babydoll does not.

That’s a lie.  I think.

We just haven’t found the right “method” yet.  What I do know is that sitting there listening to me go on and on about grammar rules does not work.

Little did I know that giving her materials on her own and just letting her go to town reading would.

When we were given the opportunity to review the Reader’s Digest Ebooks Write (Or Is That “Right”?) Every Time: Cool Ways to Improve Your English and My Grammar and I…Or Should That Be Me?: How to Speak and Write It Right, I was excited.  I figured if nothing else I would enjoy the books.

Lo and behold, I found Babydoll sitting there one day reading them herself.

Reader's Digest EbooksWrite Every Time is more appropriate for older elementary and up, and can easily be read by the child.  Babydoll sat and read this one on her own.  She even found the answer to a question she had recently:  why is a sandwich called a sandwich?  The book is full of little tidbits of information, and it’s written in a fun and engaging manner.  I don’t think Babydoll really realized she was reading a book full of grammar rules, so it’s a win in my book.

Reader's Digest EbooksI liked My Grammar and I.  It would be more appropriate for high school aged kids and older.  It is absolutely a great reference; I enjoyed thumbing through it and learned so much.  There are so many rules that I have never heard of before.  Despite the fact that there is extensive grammar education going on in this book, the delivery is still entertaining and easy to read.  It will definitely be a great component to any reference library.

I would highly recommend both books; they are high quality and made to last.  They have perhaps the most extensive coverage of grammar information I’ve seen and will grow with your children.
