But and For, Yet and Nor: What is a Conjunction?

What is a conjunction? You’ll find the answer inside this book—because it’s chock-full of conjunctions!

Playful yet informative rhymes and humorous but helpful illustrations creatively clarify the concept of conjunctions for young readers.

Key conjunctions appear in color for easy identification, and comical cats reinforce each idea.

While you read this book aloud, share in the delight of the sense—and nonsense—of words.


“Readers will enjoy the exaggerated humor in the illustrations.” (The Horn Book Guide)

“This colorful book offers information about conjunctions and examples of how they work, all in easy-to-read rhymes, beginning with, ‘Conjunctions are connecting words like but or and or or’ … An amusing addition to classroom lessons on parts of speech.”Ā (Booklist)
