[Editors' Note: The following is a combined review of NOUNS AND VERBS HAVE A FIELD DAY and SILENT LETTERS LOUD AND CLEAR.]--Robin Pulver takes young listeners into Mr. Wright's classroom for more escapades with phonics, parts of speech, and punctuation. Listeners will chuckle as they refresh themselves on the powerful relationship between nouns and verbs in sentences (NOUNS AND VERBS HAVE A FIELD DAY). They'll smile in agreement as Mr. Wright's students protest the need to include silent letters when spelling (SILENT LETTERS LOUD AND CLEAR). Narrator John Beach plays off Pulver's humor and invites listeners to imagine individual letters' personalities and voices. Beach observes the interaction between the text and its illustrations with leisurely pacing and pauses. As Mr. Wright, Beach is horrified, perplexed, or pleased each time his class surprises him. Background sound effects of school complete the production. A.R. © AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2013]
