Brian P. Clearys playful yet informative rhymes and Brian Gables humorous but helpful illustrations creatively clarify the concept of conjunctions for young readers. Key conjunctions appear in color for easy identification, and comical cats reinforce each idea.
"Brightly colored cartoon cats define and provide examples of conjunctions and their role in language. Though the pace is frantic, the rhyming text provides clear examples of the concepts; highlighted conjunctions appear in color. Readers will enjoy the exaggerated humor in the illustrations." --The Horn Book Guide "This colorful book offers information about conjunctions and examples of how they work, all in easy-to-read rhymes, beginning with, 'Conjunctions are connecting words like but or and or or.' Printed in color, each conjunction stands out from the other, black words in the text. Meanwhile, the cartoon-style artwork depicts brightly colored, catlike creatures in human dress dramatizing a variety of situations. The high-energy illustrations rev up the comic intensity of the lightly amusing verse and promise to engage children in the subject. Though the Words Are CATegorical series has tackled some topics (nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives) more than once, this is its first book presenting conjunctions. An amusing addition to classroom lessons on parts of speech." --Booklist
