My daughter's grammar has a lot of room for improvement. I am looking for a book that would cover a lot and does not say what "grade" the book is. Well, I'd be happy with a book, workbook, or website.

 

TIA!

What age range?  How about Michael Clay Thompson materials?  "Sentence Island", "Paragraph Town", "Essay Voyage" -- appealing stories for learning, lots of supporting materials for practice, and no explicit grade levels.

In that case, what about this:

 

http://www.easygrammar.com/egp.html

 

We used Easy Grammar in grades 4-5.  I'll probably pull out one of the higher level ones when my son is in high school, to cover the more advanced concepts.  The one linked above is "Easy Grammar Plus" - no grade level in the title.  It's intended for anyone grade 7 and up.  My experience with EG is that the higher level programs still cover the basics, just more quickly.  

 

It's not a "fun hands-on" kind of program, but it really is logical and "easy".

I second the "Easy Grammar" series.  It only takes about 15 min/day and while it isn't colorful and full of games--that is actually a selling point here.  My dd liked that it was no nonsense, get this DONE sort of thing.  We have also used the MCT series (mentioned above)--and while I thought it was more of a pleasure, she didn't.  She felt the stories were a bit too abstract and I repeatedly needed to help her understand the point.
