Frog. Frog? Frog!: Understanding Sentence Types

by Nancy Loewen

Illustrations by Merrill Rainey

Part of a Series: Language on the Loose.

“You won’t believe what happened today!” Exclamuel shouts as he bursts through the door. “Do tell,” says his mother, Imperatella. This humorous book teaches sentence types by focusing on an unusual family in which “each person uses only one kind of sentence.” Exclamuel speaks in exclamations while Imperatella uses imperatives. Exclamuel’s sister DeClara, who makes declaratives statements, confirms Exclamuel’s story about a frog that disrupted their picnic, while their father, Interro, ask questions that move the story along. Illustrations lend an active and silly mood to the story and capture the facial expressions appropriate to each sentence type. Back matter includes accessible definitions of the sentence types, a list of age-appropriate texts on punctuation and grammar, and a publisher-approved Web site.
