"In light verse and brightly colored pictures, Ruth Heller provides an introduction to the collective noun. The concept will stimulate the curiosity and imagination of children with an ear for language. The illustrations, containing large, bold objects in simple yet striking compositions, ensure a visually inspiring exploration as well".--Publishers Weekly. Full color illustrations.

Even adults can learn grammar from Heller's books. And everyone can enjoy the amazing art. I would love to have grandchildren who could be entrusted with complete sets of Heller's grammar and science books. Read full review
