(The) Puncs make a mark --TES, 7 January 2005 an easy to understand, brightly illustrated book that gives understandable examples of punctuation and teaches children the correct use of punctuation in a lively, interesting and witty way. --Liverpool Echo, 26 October 2004

By Susanne O on 20 July 2011
Format: Paperback
I have searched for a decent book which will help my 6 year old son to learn about punctuation and this sounded very appealing. However, I actually found it quite limited, it didn't seem to significantly move us forward and its appeal was short lived. I honestly do not know what there is out there for children of this age. Everything seems to be aimed at older children. His teacher says he should be learning punctuation but expects me to cover it at home! There's a gap in the market unless our school is on its own in these unreasonable expectations of parents. I did not feel this book lived up to its promises.
