This very clever book is designed to teach children, young and old, English. It can also be used for children who are experiencing problems with reading and writing. English is a difficult language to learn because it is made up of many languages with borrowings from French, Latin, Greek, East Indian, Spanish and Italian.  Tenses are different from the Romance languages, and its spellings are crazy.  In the late 19th or early 20th century, Congress passed an act to make spelling simple.  This only led to confusion.  “Traveller” is a case in point.  It is “Traveler” in American English and “Traveller” in British English.  Equally confusing are the “our” words.  Oduor, honour, colour in British English become odor, honor and color in American English.  Nothing is fixed or logical in English grammar. Using what she learned over sixty years of teaching English, Ariana Mangum has written a highly original work that makes learning about our language fun.
