Living Books for Grammar

Living books make subjects more interesting and fun.  Snuggling on the couch with a good book instead of spending the time sitting at a table or desk with a workbook is a plus in my book.  This is not to say that we avoid desk work, but when we find resources to learn concepts in different ways we do so.  This school year I am using a selection of living grammar books for my second grader.  They primarily deal with parts of speech, but there are also ones on punctuation.
