Don’t Dangle Your Participle
This book starts with a funny question: “What on earth is a participle and how does it dangle?” That makes me laugh! I learned that a participle is a verb that works like an adjective. I know that verbs are action words and that adjectives describe nouns. This book tells how the “participle comes before a noun to modify it.” When a participle gets lost, “it is modifying the wrong noun.” This book gives lots of examples of participles that get lost and how to help the participles get found the right way. I like reading the sets of sentences because they are so funny. The pictures show how the different sentences would look. Here is a participle that got lost: “While riding his skateboard in the park, a deer almost ran into Lester.” Can a deer ride a skateboard? That’s so silly! Then it gets found: “While riding his skateboard in the park, Lester was almost hit by a deer.” I like grammar and learning about parts of speech. I have a game called Very Silly Sentences. This is a good book.
