Best friends Cailyn and Chloe step into the role of reporter at their neighborhood block party. Their assignment? Write an essay that shows their mastery of coordinating, correlative, and subordinating conjunctions. They find plenty of opportunities as they make their way through the party, listing foods and observing people playing games. Though slightly contrived, this is more interesting than the average grammar lesson, and Cailyn and Chloe attack the topic with enthusiasm. The digital illustrations are uninspiring, but depictions of ethnically diverse characters increase their merit. The text is interspersed with dialogue and writing samples from the girls’ notebooks that show conjunctions in action. Ending with a terminology review, glossary, writing activity, and additional resources, this entry in the Language Builders series is a practical guide with hints of Schoolhouse Rock!  Booklist, April 2015

This is a good read for grades 3rd and up or whenever your child begins learning about conjunctions. It was even a great review for the three different types of conjunctions for me. 4/5 Stars NetGalley Reviewer, September 2015

For a class assignment, Cailyn and Chloe are writing an article for the school paper about their neighborhood block party using as many conjunctions as possible. They hope to win a prize for having the best newspaper article. They discuss the three types of conjunctions and how to use them and incorporate them into their story for the newspaper as they enjoy the block party. This book is written for children ages 7 to 10, but I think that it could be helpful to middle school students as well. It is informative and cute. I received this book free to review from Netgalley. 4/5 Stars NetGalley Reviewer, March 2015
