Product Description:

It's a field day frolic: a sporty exploration into words and punctuation! Get set and let's go! This is one of many settings shown in this book. Charming, colorful illustrations and catchy read-aloud rhymes explain when to use a period or a comma (and lots of other punctuation too). The various scenarios give the reader a mental picture to recall when later they have to use proper punctuation. For example, when emptying his pockets to wash his jeans, a boy finds: some cookie crumbs, a plastic spoon, a box of old raisins, 2 gumballs and a red balloon! A colon indicates a list is to follow. By remembering the junk in the pockets, a student can picture when a colon is needed. For a child struggling with mechanics, here is a low key way to help. I love that when one way of teaching doesn't do the trick, there is always another something to try! Poetic punctuation why not? 32 pp, 8.5 x 11 pb ~ Sara
