My Book of Simple Sentences: Learning about Nouns and Verbs (Kumon Workbooks)
Kumon Publishing North America
A Great Learning Tool
The Kumon workbooks continue to amaze me. I purchased My Book of Simple Sentences for my children when they were about 5 and 6. The colorful pictures are able to keep any child's attention. And, the big lines and texture of the paper allow small hands to feel comfortable even in the beginning stages of writing. The sentences are short and each lesson builds up to the next one. This workbook ...

This book has been wonderful to use in my 8th grade Language Arts classes as a daily warm-up. The students enjoy reading and correcting these funny stories way more than anything else I have tried. In fact, I ordered this book because one of my students was sitting with me as I previewed it and was laughing out loud! It is well worth the purchase!
A Sentence a Day: Short, Playful Proofreading Exercises to Help Students Avoid Tripping up When They Write
Cottonwood Press, Inc.
Not a moment too soon
It's about time that someone took it upon herself to demystify the writing process for our nation's youth. As a former college instructor, I cannot adequately express my dismay at how many of my students, products of both public and private schools, could not find it in themselves to construct a grammatically correct sentence that accurately communicated the sentiments they wished to express. ...

Great tips on styling sentences.
A great book on sentence variety. Examples of stunning sentences. Not a book to be overlooked. A must-have for any aspiring writer or student. This book is the one I most consult on sentence variety.

Sentence Composing for High School: A Worktext on Sentence Variety and Maturity
Do Yourself a Favor
My experience has been that 9th and 10th grade students are engaged by the lessons in this book. The examples come from both popular and literary works. The exercises build logically. Most students can do the work without questions, allowing time to work one-to-one with struggling students. Using these lessons gave the class a common language around creating complex sentences, which helped in ...

My Book of Sentences
Best of the writing word books in this series

We also own the My Book of Writing Words: Learning about Consonants and Vowels (Kumon Workbooks) and My Book of Simple Sentences: Learning about Nouns and Verbs (Kumon Workbooks). Although this book is recommended after the other two, I am actually going to use this book first, then the ...
CLEAN, WELL-LIGHTED SENTENCES
Offers thoroughly 'user friendly' information on how punctuation marks work to make the written word truly effective
They used to teach grammar in elementary school. Judging by so much of what crosses a book reviewer's desk these days it's clear that there's a lot of defective instruction in the basics of English grammar going on in the school systems of today. That's why such remedial publications as Janis Bell's "Clean, Well-Lighted Sentences: A Guide To Avoiding The Most Common Errors In Grammar And ...
The Ultimate Spanish Verb Review and Practice
Awesome workbook on Spanish verbs
I think even if you've already gone through another really good verb review book like Dorothy Richmond's, this one is also worth getting. There are some things one book goes over that the other doesn't. (goes both ways..) One thing I remember off the top of my head that is shown very clearly in this book that I don't remember from PMP is the way you use the "passive voice": How to say things like ...
HarperCollins e-books, 2009
Life Sentences rambles, but the reader keeps it engaging, as she shifts her voice to match the character of the moment. Laura Lippman's books are fun and interesting to read.
The McGraw-Hill Handbook of English Grammar and Usage
Exactly what I was looking for
As someone who managed to avoid learning anything in 12 years of English classes ("I already speak it, why do I need to waste my time in these classes"), I'd been bitten in the butt by my inability to clearly and concisely express myself. This was particularly embarrassing and troublesome at work when sending emails to superiors, or presenting projects to a group. I needed to learn how to ...

Essentials of Writing Biomedical Research Papers
McGraw-Hill Professional, 1999
This book will improve your papers
This is an outstanding book on how to improve the writing of biomedical research papers. It is well organized, well presented and extremely helpful. I bought several writing books at the same time and this one stands out because not only is it a "how-to" book, but it is a workbook and mostly consists of exercises. There is plenty of space in the book to do the exercises right in the book. ...

It dissects sentence composition with amazing detail and insight, beginning with short declarative sentences and working up to longer and more complex forms.

Deaf Sentence: A Novel
Deaf Sentence by David Lodge is a sweet book
I just read the sweetest book. David Lodge is a British novelist and academic. Some of his very funny novels deal with visiting professors who have affairs with other professors while visiting campuses across the Atlantic. But this book wasn't like that at all. Deaf Sentence is about a retired linguistics professor who is losing his hearing. He is happily married to his second wife and dealing ...
