Grammar Can Be Fun

Grammar Can Be Fun was written by Munro Leaf and published in 1934. Clearly, it rules. You can pretty much always assume I’ll dig something that instills good grammar, especially if that something explains the difference between “well” and “good.” And especially if those explanations are accompanied by awesome illustrations. All images below found over at Curious Pages (amazing blog of lesser-known children’s books, which you must visit A.S.A.P.!) by way of Martin Klasch:
