The Butterfly Grammar A Course for Better English by Irina Tyk

The Butterfly Grammar has been written by Irina Tyk as the sequel and companion to The Butterfly Book . It takes children to the next stage, from being able to read fluently to being able to express themselves correctly both in writing and in speaking. The Butterfly Grammar sets out, in clear lessons that are designed for young learners, the rules that govern the way in which we form sentences. Parts of speech, tenses of verbs, punctuation and sentence structure are all dealt with in this child-friendly introduction to the rules of grammar. The rules are illustrated by means of short stories, including the further adventures of Ponti Panda.

Harriet Cunningham

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale
