Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book will be of special value to middle school students and high school students growing up in families where English is not the first language. Like other titles in Barron's Painless series, the approach to learning is informal and user-friendly. The authors take students step by step through all parts of speech--nouns, pronouns, verbs, modifiers, prepositions, conjunctions, and interjections. Next they offer advice for improving vocabulary, spelling, and American English pronunciation, emphasizing the importance of active listening, and learning vowel sounds and R sounds, and recognizing silent letters and homophones. The book's final three chapters concentrate on written English, advancing from correct punctuation and sentence structure to writing essays and stories. The book's gradual, step-by-step approach makes the mastery of English a truly painless process for students whose first language is other than English.

Synopsis:

Frogs certainly do not fly, but when kids look at the picture, then lift the bright red "flower flap," they discover butterflies—and they do fly! The picture's surprise flap is a cloud that hides birds. They fly, too! Do jellyfish jump? Do sheep dive? Kids will find these and more questions as they turn this book's pages. With bright, cheerful illustrations, a lively text, and laugh-producing flaps for toddlers to lift, Animal Flappers Books ask questions and reveal answers behind each illustration's amusing flaps. Two delightful play books are filled with fun for preschool boys and girls. They treat kids to a display of funny animals, silly questions, and a set of two flaps on every two-page spread. Each question's answer is hidden behind one flap, and a funny surprise second answer is hidden behind the other. Each book presents six sets of animals with their questions.

Synopsis:
