"Part of the “Word Fun” series of fifteen books on parts of speech and elements of grammar, this edition explains prefixes for early elementary students. In the picture book format, the story defines the many ways a prefix can be used and gives examples of each use, while underlining the prefixes in all examples. Colorful, cartoon-like drawings of animals and minimal text combine to attract young readers by reinforcing the various uses of prefixes and ways in which the addition of prefixes can change the meaning of a word. There are plenty of examples on each page to reinforce learning. A follow-up written activity, glossary of new terms, and sources for further study are included. For struggling readers who need follow up, this book would be ideal." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
