Absolutely the RIGHT stuff for children!,
This review is from: US Punctuation (Basher) (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This is a great book - it's brilliantly clear and brilliantly colourful,and it turns a traditionally dreary topic into FUN. And anything that stops the learning of punctuation feeling like hard work for an 8+ year old is a good thing in my book! "Punctuation: the write stuff" covers a sensible range of topics, from sentences, full stops, commas, apostrophes, speech marks, brackets, semi-colons and more, making each fun and surprisingly accessible. There's a double page spread for each with a memorable picture to help the reader fix the appropriate idea in their head -the question mark is a detective, the exclamation marl a charatcer with a megaphone - and an explanatory paragraph with funky modern examples (e.g. parentheses: we are twins, full of gossip, juicy details and small comments on things) and key points on the facing page. There's also a glossary and brief basic grammar section at the back.
Simply brilliant (though I hope author Mary Budzik doesn't come looking at my review with her red pen!)
