Punctuation: The Write Stuff
Keeping track of all the different rules of those little dots, dashes, and squiggles can be challenging to a young writer. When do I use double quotation marks? When do I use singles? When do I use a comma before a quotation? Thankfully, this book is here to help. With quirky illustrations, it introduces the various marks as characters, with bullet points for usage and an explanatory paragraph from the mark's perspective. You'll be introduced to the list-making comma ("I'm the ref who steps in and brings order," he says), the Parentheses twins, and the Possessive Apostrophe and you'll remember them, too. An excellent handbook for kids. 64 pages, softcover. ~ Mark
