Gr 5 Up-There's a lot of grammar packed into this compact volume, and anyone who doesn't have a computer with spell check and grammar check needs it. Each of the three sections (``Building Sentences,'' ``Parts of Speech,'' and ``Style and Usage'') is preceded by a detailed table of contents. Many necessary examples are provided. There is an index, but the excellent tables of contents are more useful. All in all, a handy guide.-Kate Hegarty Bouman, Susquehanna Valley Junior High School, Conklin, NY
