"Through the use of
hamster antics, Cynthia Reeg, in her whimsical style, writes about
nouns and adjectives in a way that will capture the interest of any
student. The illustrations by Kit Grady help portray the fun. Hamster
Holidays: Noun and Adjective Adventures is a "must have" for any
teacher who is introducing or reinforcing nouns and adjectives in her classroom!"

"Author Cynthia Reeg has put together a great story about child-friendly hamsters celebrating their own special holidays throughout the year.
The hamsters cavort across the pages to lead your child through twelve whacky hamster holidays while teaching nouns and adjectives along the way. Your child will also find a calendar at the bottom of each page, highlighting the holiday date, as an additional learning tool. Parents and teachers will love this book for all the word activities, study guide, word match-ups, word scrambles, puzzles, etc. located at the back of the book after the final holiday of the hamster year – Toy Parade Day, December 6th. I give this book a high five for the excellent learning tools Author Cynthia Reeg has included to make learning so much fun, and for the colorful, kid-friendly illustrations by Kit Grady. This book is definitely a keeper!"

"Hamster Holidays is very creative and cute and has a lot of great suggestions in the back for
learning nouns and adjectives. I really liked the activities provided. This is something that a lot of homeschool moms might be interested in. Most of us have grammar curriculums, however, I see it as
an added fun book and activities to use."
