Punctuation Celebration

Punctuation Celebration

by Elsa Knight Bruno Illustrated by Jenny Whitehead

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.
