Book Review - Barron's Painless Spelling
Titles in Barron's extensive Painless Series cover a wide range of subjects as they are taught on middle school and high school levels. These books are written for students who find the subjects unusually difficult and confusing--or in many cases, just plain boring. Barron's Painless Series authors' main goal is to clear up students' confusion and perk up their interest by emphasizing the intriguing and often exciting ways in which they can put each subject to practical use. Most of these books take a light-hearted approach to their subjects, often employing humor, and always presenting fun-learning exercises that include puzzles, games, and challenging "Brain Tickler" problems to solve. American English sound and letter patterns, homophones, prefixes and suffixes, and more are all presented with fun-to-solve "Brain Ticklers" to self-test students' learning progress.

My Take on the Book
Taking the time with my eldest to work on spelling words can be daunting at times, even though I know that it is important, and sometimes my daughter gets frustrated in the process. This book makes the task of working on spelling that much easier. The book was well laid out and made so much sense. My daughter even liked many of the sections that I introduced to her. I particularly liked the "brain ticklers" as these provided a great way to check in on where you stand in your own learning! Overall I have to say that this was a great book and was one that I highly recommend!
