I am a big fan of any sort of learning you can do that doesn't require rote memorization or the use of a club. I'll use Schoolhouse Rock as my shining example, where you're singing so loudly about interjections that you don't even realize you've just learned that they're "generally set apart from a sentence by an exclamation point, or by a comma when the feeling's not as strong." "Penny and the Punctuation Bee" is a book in that vain. Your kids will get caught up in Moira Donohue's story, colorfully illustrated by Jenny (rhymes with Penny) Law. (Will Penny win the Punctuation Bee? Or will she be beaten out by the perky cheerleader, Elsie? Will Quentin ever stop asking questions? And doesn't Mr. Dash look groovy in his fancy new bow tie?) The fact that your kids will also learn something while they read this book is pure gravy. (Or, as Elsie would say: Gravy!)

Donohue follows Alfie the Apostrophe with another romp through the world of animate punctuation marks. This book focuses on final punctuation marks and Penny the star of the book is a dazzling, fun, wonderful, and makes learning about punctuation an adventure. As an adult who has trouble with punctuation and grammar, I am a huge fan of Donohue's books and I can actually use it to learn from too. But the real value of this book is that it will intrigue and entertain children as they learn about punctuation

'Bright,' 'cheerful' and 'encouraging' all describe Donohue's most recent punctuation lesson in 'Penny and the Punctuation Bee.' Once again Donohue has struck the fine chord between instructional and fun. Penny and her friends help youngsters learn in the positive way the correct use of marks that end our sentences as well as serve other uses in helping us to communicate clearly with one another. She rejects the approach found today in some pockets of teaching and writing that tend to teach the mistake. Other books focus on the errors of misuse. This only confuses youngsters who are still learning the basics. Read Penny and see how it is done right the first time.
