Nouns and Verbs Have a Field Day

Nouns and Verbs Have a Field Day

Illustrated by Lynn Rowe Reed


Nouns and Verbs Have a Field Day

About the Book

It's Field Day in Mr. Wright's class, and not just for the students. Nouns and verbs want to play their own games, such as tug-of-words and three-legged races. But wait! No one is getting anywhere. First nouns and verbs will have to learn about the kind of teamwork needed to make a sentence.

"Pulver's humorous offering presents an appropriately athletic point of access to an often too-dry subject."—The Horn Book
"Reed’s vividly colored cartoons capture the high-energy activity, showing triangular-shaped verbs smiling, hopping, and whining their way through the story, accompanied by a variety of animated classroom objects. Although the emphasis is on silliness, Pulver makes her point about the parts of speech; even the youngest listeners will realize that sentences need both nouns and verbs in order to make sense."—Booklist
