Mary's Grammar
by Jane Marcet
An engaging introduction to grammar through the conversations Mary shares with her mother. Stories are interspersed periodically to enliven the short lessons on grammar. The author of this book, Jane Marcet, was a prolific writer in the first half of the 19th century. Her success lay in her ability to explain complex concepts in simple language to a broad audience, to adults as well as to children. In her works for children, she guides the youthful reader to discovery, prompting her to be observant and engendering in her a thirst for further knowledge.  Ages 7-10
