A fantastic guide to punctuation, specifically commas, for children (although we're sure there are a few adults who could use the help too!). These fantastic illustrations show children how the position of a comma in a sentence can make a huge difference to its meaning.  It's a charming and funny book that will make grammar fun for your child.

Eats, Shoots & Leaves: Why, Commas Make a Difference Synopsis

You might want to eat a huge hot dog, but a huge, hot dog would run away pretty quickly if you tried to take a bite out of him. “Children Drive Slowly” on a road-sign doesn’t quite sum up what kids do in their spare time. And we all know now that the comma in “Eats shoots and leaves” is a crucial one.

Lynne Truss and Bonnie Timmons illuminate the hilarious confusion that one mere dot with a tail can cause, in this follow-up to the number one best-seller Eats, Shoots & Leaves – which this time features lively and subversive pictures by one of America’s leading illustrators.

This picture book is sure to elicit gales of laughter and better punctuation from all who read it.
