Vinny the Action Verb & Lucy the Linking Verb may disagree on some things, but they both love teaching about verbs. It's book two 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.

Vinny and Lucy approach life differently. He's all action, while she's content to sit back and be. With their friend Jake the adjective in trouble, however, the two verbs must put aside their differences and work together to save the day. Clear and informative back matter includes textbook-style definitions and usage examples of transitive action verbs, intransitive action verbs, and linking verbs.

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.
