Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This book makes learning punctuation fun and funny. My nine year old loves it. I know she will remember to plop her dot where the sentence stops, and shout with her exclamation point!
Very clever short poems about punctuation marks. All are quite clever, possibly too clever for kids. Must test a few of these out.
It's not easy to compose poems about punctuation, and make them really work. This is a good effort, but falls short of a good poetry book.
