Product Details


* “In the funniest picture book yet from Pulver and Reed’s Language Arts Library series, the students are well meaning, easily distracted, and not without cunning. Childlike acrylic paintings combine with digital elements to make the artwork vivid and colorful. From the conversations between uppercase and lowercase letters to the comedy within class discussions, it’s hard to read the story aloud without laughing, and the humor makes the lesson more likely to stick. A madcap grammar book for kids to enjoy.”—Booklist, Starred Review
“Childlike acrylic illustrations, with eyeballs on each letter (which resemble the magnetic ones kids stick onto refrigerators), keep the tone light and airy, and an informative author’s note about why capital letters are also called uppercase letters will certainly be a surprise to the average elementary school student. A capital idea!”—The Horn Book
“A fascinating note caps things off by explaining how capital and small letters got the monikers uppercase and lowercase. Reed’s acrylic-and-digital artwork sports her now-trademark style, childlike figures surrounded by doctored plastic fridge magnets. . . . a pretty painless way to teach capitalization and letter writing.”—Kirkus Reviews
