62 FLOREY, KITTY BURNS. Sister Bernadette's Barking Dog: The Quirky History And Lost Art Of Diagramming Sentences.
Harcourt, Inc., Orlando: 2007. First Harvest Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
In its heyday, sentence diagramming was wildly popular in grammar schools across the country. Kitty Burns Florey learned the method in sixth grade from Sister Bernadette. "It was a bit like art, a bit like mathematics. It was a picture of language. I was hooked." Now, in Sister Bernadette's Barking Dog, an offbeat history that any language lover will adore, Florey explores the sentence-diagramming phenomenon and what diagrams of famous writers' sentences reveal about them. "A pleasantly discursive and affectionate tribute to an antiquated art." - The Wall Street Journal
