Giveaway! Grammarland & Click Go the Shears

Grammarland by M.L. Nesbitt is an allegorical & pictorial introduction to the parts of speech. Best for ages 10 and up.



Click go the Shears is a traditional Australian bush ballad that had been passed down by word of mouth and so has a number of variations. This blog gives some history of the song.
The book below is illustrated by Robert Ingpen, who just has a way of capturing the heart of whatever he has painted. I love his artwork.







Attendees of the Mum Heart Conference at Newcastle in June are eligible to enter to win either book. Leave a comment here and/or on Journey & Destination's Facebook page.

  1. Grammarland looks interesting! I love Click go the Shears, we always made up silly verses to the tune as kids.

    1. I've used it on its own. 17 Chapters - dd read a chapter & narrated then I gave her some free worksheets that a homeschooling mum put together: http://dontneednoeducation.blogspot.com.au/2010/01/grammar-land-worksheets.html
      I used CM's grammar book about 15 yrs ago but have to say that I didn't like it...
