"A useful teaching tool, the book explains the meaning of different punctuation marks and provides many examples of their use. The characters and their speech bubbles each have their own color and speak in sentences that contain their own type of punctuation. Their faces convey a wealth of emotion and several well-placed details add elements of discovery to the reading." --School Library Journal

This is the story of four friends. Period's the serious one, Question Mark is always confused, Exclamation Point is hyped-up on caffeine all the time, and Comma's brain can't get past the breakfast table each day. All this selfish thinking creates plenty of problems for these buddies and almost breaks the party up for good, until a newcomer arrives to show them how much better life can be when they all work together.
This book is loads of fun -- the minimalistic illustrations allow the characters to ooze personality and are the perfect vehicle for a book on grammar.
And as if the fun examples throughout the book weren't enough, at the end is a special 4-page section to reiterate the rules for each punctuation mark along with additional examples.
I wish I'd had this book back when I was still in the classroom, because it would have been the perfect way to introduce these special marks to my students.
This book is a wonderful addition to your personal (or class) library. It is definitely my new favorite title to use when introducing punctuation marks to young learners!
I received a free copy of this product from Innovation Press in exchange for writing a review. All opinions are my own.
My daughter and son both have read the book several times now. I love that they point out the punctuation marks as they read and giggle. It has been a wonderful addition to our home library.
I was honored to receive a copy of this book for my honest review. I hope he writes more like this!
