Punctuation marks come alive in this clever picture book featuring fourteen playful poems. Periods stop sentences in a baker’s shop, commas help a train slow down, quotation marks tell people what to do, and colons stubbornly introduce lists. This appealing primer is a surefire way to make punctuation both accessible and fun for kids.

Praise for Punctuation Celebration

Praise for Punctuation Celebration:

“Here's a poetic way to learn punctuation — 14 rhyming poems, with illustrated examples of hyphens, colons and other acrobatic punctuation at work. It's playfully instructive.”—USA Today

“Teachers presenting punctuation will be glad to have such a lighthearted interpretation of the topic to share with their classes.”—Booklist

“For those looking for a quick punctuation review in a fresh style, this will do nicely.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Bruno’s writing is clear and lively throughout… Bright collages of children of various ethnicities engaged in diverse activities complement the text… Bruno’s comprehensive approach to the topic offers good value to smaller collections.”School Library Journal
