"Part of the “Word Fun” series of fifteen books on parts of speech and elements of grammar, this edition explains suffixes for early elementary students. In the picture book format, the story defines the many ways a suffix can be used and gives examples of each use, underlining the examples throughout. Colorful, cartoon-like drawings of animals and minimal text combine to attract young readers by reinforcing the various uses of suffixes such as to indicate the past tense, the present tense, and plural. The book also describes how the addition of each sufix changes the meaning of a word. There are more than one example of each use for readers having difficulty mastering the elements of grammar. A follow up written activity, glossary of new terms, and sources for further study included." - Children's Literature Comprehensive Database
