Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Teachers and parents know that teaching is more effective when kids are having fun. Rick Walton's Language Adventures Series combines entertainment and education with eight newly revised picture books that cleverly teach grammar and usage. Kids will love the silly stories, funny illustrations, and witty wordplay. Teachers and parents will love the new features: definitions at the beginning of the book and activities at the end that allow kids to apply what they've learned.

Titles in the series include

Around the House, the Fox Chased the Mouse: Adventures in Prepositions

Bullfrog Pops: Adventures in Verbs and Objects

Herd of Cows, Flock of Sheep: Adventures in Collective Nouns

Just Me and 6,000 Rats: Adventures in Conjunctions

Once There Was a Bull . . . (Frog): Adventures in Compound Words

Pig Pigger Piggest: Adventures in Comparing

Suddenly Alligator: Adventures in Adverbs

Why the Banana Split: Adventures in Idioms

Rick Walton is the author of more than sixty children's books, including this best-selling language arts series. His books have been featured on the IRA Children's Choice list, Reading Rainbow, and CBS This Morning.

More than 150,000 copies sold

What's more fun than a clowder of cats, a rafter of turkeys, a swarm of bees, or a pack of dogs? Herd of Cows Flock of Sheep -the latest word play from the king of language arts picture books, Rick Walton.

After bringing in his corn, potatoes, beans, and tomatoes before a rainstorm, Farmer Bob decides to settle down for a good night's rest. While he snoozes away, the river rises high enough to set his bed afloat down the river. This sends his animals into a panic-a drove of pigs outlines a plan, a colony of beavers races to chew down trees, a school of fish tries to create a dam, and so forth, until finally Farmer Bob is rescued by a nest of snakes and a herd of horses. It's a barnyard adventure that will leave bands of children begging for more.

Author of Once There Was a Bull frog, Bullfrog Pops and many other wonderful children's books, Rick Walton lives with his wife and four children in Provo, Utah, where he writes on whatever is available and gets pretty much what he deserves. You can find out more about Rick at www.rickwalton.com.

Julie Olson was born in Maryland, grew up in Evansville, Indiana, and graduated from Brigham Young University with a B.F.A. in illustration. She lives near Utah's Rocky Mountains, where she devotes her time to illustration and family.
