Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Possessive case and contractions are just two ways that apostrophes are used to punctuate written language. Learn about the usage of this punctuation mark in a book with many examples. The apostrophes are highlighted to draw readers' attention to their use. Information about the apostrophes is found on the top left portion of the page. The fictional story on the same pages is about the wildlife around the scouts' camp; this story provides a variety of examples for using apostrophes. Some children who read the book may need an explanation about the book's two concurrent storylines (i.e., the apostrophe lesson and the camping tale). The print type is different, but some readers may need to understand how best to utilize the format. Brightly-colored illustrations based on the camping story fill the pages. The "Quick Review," located at the end of the book, provides a summary of how the apostrophe should be used. A list of additional resources is provided, including some related books and the address of the FactHound website, which is a portal to Internet sites about punctuation and grammar. This book is one of six in the "Word Fun: Punctuation" series. All of the books share the lesson-story format. Other books in the series cover the comma, period, question mark, exclamation point, and quotation marks. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
