Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
The use of quotation marks is the main topic of this informational text. The information about the punctuation mark is found at the top left portion of each page, and the rest of each layout provides examples quotation marks is use. The quotation marks in the examples are highlighted in blue, bold print. Along with the information about quotation marks, there is a secondary story about a classroom production of several different plays. This story provides the examples of proper quotation mark use. Some readers may need an explanation about the book's format and organization in order to understand how it works. At the back of the book, a "Quick Review" summarizes how quotation marks should be used and provides some additional examples. The index gives readers a quick way to find particular types of examples. The suggested activity is about using quotation marks and listing titles of short stories, fairy tales, and folktales. Students may benefit by actually using quotation marks in their own generated stories. The author provides a list of additional resources about quotation marks and punctuation, including books and the address of the FactHound website. This book is a part of the "Word Fun: Punctuation" series featuring different punctuation marks. The other five books have a similar format and presentation. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
