Ruth Heller's books about grammar

I just learned about these today. I'm going to check out this one from the library since we are still studying nouns. Quite a few people at the Well-Trained Mind forum have mentioned they like them. There is a whole series, including Collective Nouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Adverbs, etc.

UPDATE: These books are GORGEOUS! The illustrations are simply beautiful. Spud picked the "Verbs" one out of the library basket the other day to read, and while I don't know that the concept of "verb" sunk in, it was an enjoyable read and, like I've mentioned twice, the pictures are breathtaking. Definitely worth a look. We still need to read the one about nouns. I will try and get it in the workbox soon.
