Overview: Learning should be a sweet experience. That’s why you’ll find an illustration of a scoop of vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce throughout this book. You’ll also notice lots of sample words and sentences, 83 beautiful photographs and illustrations, links to information online, practice questions, fun facts, and quizzes.
With seven categories to choose from, there’s something here for everyone:
Exploration, Art & Invention, Food, Sports, Classic Movies & TV, Poetry, and Travel.
As you’ll see, this grammar book is all about culture. For example, Renoir’s LUNCHEON OF THE BOATING PARTY will guide you through the definition of a noun, and cupcakes will help you learn about adjectives.
THE SCOOP ON GOOD GRAMMAR is easily searchable. In no time at all, choosing the correct pronoun (it’s between you and me—not, between you and I) and the appropriate modifying word (it’s really sweet—not, real sweet) will become second nature to you.
Your invitations will be as welcoming as that statue that lifts her torch in the harbor:
~ Please join the Ghirardellis (not, the Ghirardelli’s) for a party!
Greeting people will become an occasion to shine:
~How are you?
~I’m fine, and you? (Not, I’m fine, and yourself?)
When you write, you’ll always point your readers in the right direction with proper punctuation marks. And at the end of the day, you’ll lie (not, lay) down, relax, and take pleasure in the knowledge that your prized possession—your artful way with words—has been, in its (not, it’s) own way, as beautifying to the landscape as a masterpiece by Renoir.
By the time you finish this book, you’ll be able to express yourself correctly with confidence and ease.
