    "Fun & educational!"

    This was a fun and educational piece! Full of humor and grammatical rules, I think many folks (writers, knowitalls, kids, folks trying to understand the crazy rules of the English language) would get a lot out of this. I especially enjoyed this audio version because of the rhyming.

    Told in a ‘let’s have a nice chat’ voice, the author starts Mrs. G.P. off with some simple grammar rules. The subjects become increasingly more complex as you move towards the end of the book. Such grammar subjects as the subjective, transition phrases, and the plurals of odd words are tackled. The original rhymes are fun and also help me remember some of these more difficult rules. At the end, Mrs. G.P. tosses in how the English language is built out of many other languages. I especially enjoyed this point, along with all the examples.

    This little book had me chuckling to myself over the cleverness. I think if you are struggling with some grammar rules, or perhaps you didn’t even know such things existed in such convoluted detail, I think this book would be a boon to you. I also liked the little fact that Mrs. G. P. has a beau, Mr. Syntax.

    I won a copy of this book from the Lazy Day Library Reviews FB group.

    The Narration: Carrie Lee Martz has narrated several other books by this author, specifically her cozy mystery series. So I have enjoyed her narration before. It was excellent to hear her again. I think she had fun with the rhyming. She did a great job of clearly enunciating similar words so that the listener can clearly hear the differences in word choice.

    "Good reminders for us all"
    If you could sum up Teatime with Mrs. Grammar Person in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, helpful, practical


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mrs. GP, as she knows it all.


    Have you listened to any of Carrie Lee Martz’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think so. I enjoyed listening to her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, this was a good one to stop at the end of each chapter and pick up again later. Let some of that great information sink into my brain before adding more.


    Any additional comments?

    A couple of times I wished I were reading it in print, but really enjoyed listening to it overall.

    "Cute Book"

    This book is filled with information and given in a way to make you remember. It helps with all those grammatical questions you may be wondering about. Mrs. Grammar Person reminds us of being weary of relying on things such as spell check (i.e. morning vs. mourning – huge difference!) There are many tidbits such as this throughout the book.

    The presentation is very pleasant and enjoyable, which isn’t usually true for a grammar book. I listened to this one in my car. It’s the perfect audio book. I felt as if the narrator was in the car and we were having a conversation, not just being taught about grammar. It’s a quick book to listen to…I finished in one day.

    This is a very cute way to learn important information.

    "A fun lesson about grammar..."

    A fun quirky look at our American language as Mrs Grammar teaches us the best way to use some words and points out how some of our language makes no sense at all. I like to listen to these Grammar audio books as I remember things that I correct myself at a later time. The book is short and to the point, yet covers a large bit of our English and how we use it vs how it should be used.

    The author, Barbara Venkataraman does a great job at holding our interest and keeping us entertained all while teaching us something. The narrator, Carrie Lee Martz explains all these words and phrases to us in a clear tone making it easier to understand. Well done!

    I received this audio book as a gift in exchange for a honest and unbiased review.

    "Witty and useful"

    A compilation of blog posts, Teatime takes this author's love of grammar to the next level. While I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this, it might also be a useful educational tool. Martz did a great job narrating and enunciating the often difficult to distinguish words in this piece, as the writer made quite a lot of puns and quirky little vocab jokes, requiring the reader to spend extra time carefully pronouncing each word to completely understand the humor.
