Great book, one confused bit about linking vs state of being verbs
Reviewed in the United States on January 10, 2019
I see online that other parents have been confused by her presentation of linking vs helping vs state of being verbs. She gives the example of "She is." as a sentence that uses a state of being verb. My research online confirmed that state of being verbs are one form of (the most common form of) linking verbs, not really a separate/distinct category of verbs. If she presented it this way, it would get her off the hook from offering awkward "sentences" like "She is." and "You are." as examples of "state of being" verbs. Hope this makes sense. Just wanted to affirm that if you're confused, it's because she doesn't have this quite right, I don't think. I found it helpful to do additional research online and I'm not going to teach it the way she presents it. But we enjoy these books. A lot of repetition, which is what my 2nd grade son needs, but some nice poetry, stories, and pictures to break things up.
