Linking verbs show linkage between a subject and an object of a sentence; the subject is restated in some form as the object that follows the linking verb. Examples:

Jennie is my sister. (Jennie = sister) or My feet got wet in the puddle. (feet->wet)

Action verbs express an action of some kind, what the subject can do, did, is doing, will do, etc. Examples:

George was sleeping.

I'm hoping that she will come.

My mom made the cookies.
