Students got a good laugh as I read this book aloud. There were so many adjectives within this book that I was stumbling on my words. Students loved the illustrations and ellaborated on them. They were asked to try to recall as many adjectives from the story as they could after I read it, and they did very good at this task. This was a very fun, light read aloud.

Does a great job of showing what an adjective is and how it is used in a sentence. The illustrations are colorful, silly and aid the text. The text highlights the adjectives in a variety of colors. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0822567091, Library Binding)

One book is never enough to explore the wide range of amazing adjectives! The crazy cats deliver loads of additional examples to illustrate the potent power of adjectives to describe the wonderful world around us--and our incredible imaginations. Brian P. Cleary's playful verse and Brian Gable's comical cats turn traditional grammar lessons on end. Each adjective is printed in color for easy identification. Read this book aloud and share the delight of the sense--and nonsense--of words.
