sun (hot, bright), ball (round, bouncy), pig (dirty, pink), racecar (fast, loud), shark (dangerous, gray)

First, explain to the child what the book is about. Explain what an adjective is and how this book is toteach how to use adjectives in a sentence.
Then, show the fill-in sentence on the LEFT side and the answer choices are on the RIGHT side.
