In Grammar All Stars, sports announcer Buzz Star meets children athletes who help him better understand parts of speech. Who knew tennis had anything to do with conjunctions? Or Surfing with Compounds? Or golf and adverbs? Or football and nouns? Examples of the part of speech highlighted in the book appear in bold text to help kids understand the context in which these types of words are used. Each book also includes a related practice activity (with answers) to help reinforce the concepts expressed in the book.

Well, hockey fans, we have made it to Round 2 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Wasn't really sure we would get there, based on how the Red Wings played at the end of the season, but very glad to see it happened. In other hockey news, the Pittsburgh Penguins have also raced into Round 2 of the Playoffs. Will these two teams meet up in the finals? I know that my nails will be bitten off in anticipation. Check out the Red Wings and Penguins websites for updates and tickets! Go Peng-wings! (I do have divided loyalites, after all!)
