Word Play by Adam Lehrhaupt - ADVISABLE

Lehrhaupt, Adam Word Play, illustrated by Jared Chapman.  PICTURE BOOK.  Arthur A. Levine, 2017.  $18

Noun, verb, adjective, adverb, and interjection are all together to play.  Verb is ready for action and she gets a little jealous when noun takes the stage.  When trouble comes along, verb has to decide whether to help or whether to leave noun in a lurch.

The picture book starts with a short, clear explanation of each word of speech.  The interplay between the words is amusing and with some careful guidance can be a good way to introduce and reinforce early grammar concepts.  I love this back to basics look at Language Arts.  While this is not a perfect book, it is engaging.
