Language of God Grammar and Composition This popular series of worktexts is designed to provide the Catholic child with a solid yet family-friendly approach to grammar and composition skills, all in the context of our Holy Faith. When children search to identify nouns within an amusing story about brothers and sisters helping one another with family chores, the Faith is presented as naturally on the page as it is within the family dynamics. Each level encourages independent study and includes high-quality, bright-white, erasable paper with a lay-flat spiral binding, an uncluttered layout, entertaining content, and removable answer keys. The engaging variety of activities holds students’ interest so they are eager to begin each day’s lesson. Instructions and practice exercises are presented in an easily understood manner, yet without needless repetition, making it simple to accomplish a page or two each day.
