Book Review: Nouns & Verbs Have a Field Day

Nouns and Verbs Have a Field Day 

by Robin Pulver, illustrated by Lynn Rowe Reed

Ages 6-8, 28 pages

Mr. Wright’s students always search for nouns (person, place, thing or idea) and verbs (actions) within their classroom. One day, Mr. Wright’s class leaves the classroom and play outside for field day. Well the nouns and verbs also want to participate in field day. They form partners and teams, so of course the nouns stick with nouns and verbs stick with verbs. There’s paper and pencil, glue and tape, catch and throw, run and jump, and of course proper nouns stick together. However, nouns and verbs couldn’t do anything without each other. They looked out the window to see students and discover nouns and verbs working together, so they gradually form new teams and partners. ‘Nouns and verbs played tug-of-words’. The pictures are fun, because it’s as though the actual items came alive. The nouns wear ‘N’ hats and verbs are shaped like a ‘V’. At the end, there are noun and verb puzzles and riddles.

The author, Robin Pulver, wrote numerous books similar to Nouns and Verbs Have a Field Day that relate to punctuation and other children’s books.
