Jake the Adjective is your guide to all that is wonderful, interesting, and lovely about adjectives. It's book three of the Meet the Parts of Speech series, in which the eight parts of speech are personified based on the roles they play in the sentence.

When Jake's nemesis pulls a prank and turns Grammaropolis into a grey, misshapen, tasteless town, Jake is forced to run around restoring everything--the colors, shapes, sizes, tastes, and more--to the way it was all meant to be. Clear and informative back matter includes textbook-style definitions and examples of adjectives modifying nouns and pronouns along with comparative and superlative adjectives.

In Grammaropolis, adverbs don't just modify verbs; adverbs are bossy. They tell the verbs where to go, when to leave, and how to get there. A pronoun doesn't just replace a noun; Roger the pronoun is a shady character who's always trying to trick Nelson the noun into giving up his spot. The Meet the Parts of Speech series uses the mechanics of character and story (plot, motivation, setting, etc.) to breathe life into what has traditionally been unengaging subject matter.

Our story-based approach combines traditional instruction with original narrative content, which appeals to different learning styles, increases both engagement and retention, and encourages students to make a deeper connection with the parts of speech and punctuation marks.
