Reviewed by Tiffany Ferrell for Readers' Favorite

In The Language Theater by Maria Beatty, we are introduced to nine actors who are part of English grammar. Theo the grammarian is the lead of the show and soon we meet Verb, Noun, Article, Adverb, Adjective, Pronoun, Conjunction, Preposition, and Interjection. Each actor is unique and plays a specific part in the English language. Filled with many examples, the story gives hands-on experience in creating sentences with each actor from Theo’s show.

I thought this was a brilliant book and I wish there had been a book like this around when I helped my nieces and nephews with their English homework years ago. English is one of the hardest languages to learn in the world and many kids struggle with being able to write proper sentences. The earlier a child learns the rules of the English language the better off they are when it comes to school and the other subjects that follow. We use English written language for most subjects in school.

The Language Theater by Maria Beatty makes learning a fun experience with a story that is easy to follow and bright images to capture and keep youngsters' attention. I think Bill Skrief has done a wonderful job creating characters out of the words and how they are part of a sentence. I also thought it a great idea to have worksheets and exercises after learning each type of word and how they are classified. It gives children a chance to practice. Overall, I thought this was a very educational book and will definitely be recommending it to others.
