Description: Children are introduced to nouns through a rhyming list of examples.The actual definition is never given, but the reader is asked to infer the definition.

A Mink... teaches kids about nouns by incorporating them in wild, Dr. Seuss-like rhymes. The bright colored-pencil illustrations provide all sorts of outrageous scenes for nouns to be drawn from. As for the text, the words are large enough for beginning readers to follow along easily. Each noun appears in color, helping readers distinguish the noun from the rest of the text.

Children are never explicitly given a definition of a noun in this book, but by the end, most readers will understand what they are and how they are used in sentences. In fact, the book ends with questions: "So what is a noun? Do you know?" Using these last questions as a discussion point, librarians, teachers and parents can gauge their readers' grasp of the noun concept.

Professional reviews:
Krapp, Lisa Gangemi (1999). Library Journal.

The reviewer takes issue with one line of awkward syntax in this book.While I agree that the line is a little clunky, I think it is the only instance of such a mistake.The reviewer also notes that the book fails to cover possessive and plural nouns. I disagree and think that more involved topics, such as these, are outside the scope of this book.

Kirkus Review.

The Kirkus review liked Cleary's demonstrative method of teaching and stated that he dropped many, subtle hints about noun rules, such as what makes a noun proper.I agree that lengthy explanations are not needed here.
