Punctuation Celebration

Bruno, Elsa Knight. Punctuation Celebration. Illustrated by Jenny Whitehead. Henry Holt: 2009. ISBN: 9780805079739.

Punctuation Celebration by Elsa Knight Bruno is a fiction book about how to find the right punctuation. The artwork is hilarious, cute , and great. The pictures are bright, colorful, and go with the writing. In the writing there are rhymes that are great to enjoy while learning about punctuation. This book made learning punctuation fun. I liked Punctuation Celebration because even though I already knew about punctuation I enjoyed the pictures and imagining punctuation coming to life. I loved the scene with the colon and the kid was emptying out his jeans and all different things come out because we all do that and find things we don't expect. I think Punctuation Celebration is a great book for younger children. It is great for them to learn punctuation in a fun and silly way.
