Grade 2-4–With their comical cartoon characters and Seussian rhymes, Cleary and Gable have already claimed their niche for providing grammar instruction in a clear, lighthearted manner. Useful for introductory lessons on the topic, this book will help teachers to model better writing and to demonstrate the value of an expanded vocabulary. "Synonyms help us be less repetitious," chants Cleary, "by letting us choose between blue plates or dishes." Each page presents Gable's zany creatures immersed in a new adventure; synonyms are indicated in a common color that contrasts with the black text. While students may still struggle to come up with more original word choices of their own, this excellent text goes a long way toward establishing the importance of synonyms.
