9780590386746: Punctuation Power: Punctuation and How to Use It

Puncuation Power, the newest paperback Scholastic Guide, is a guide to all of the punctuation 8 to 14-year-olds (and most adults) need. It uses a clever format that is fun and informative.

Knowing how to puncuate sentences properly is a skill that can help any writer communicate more clearly. PUNCTUATION POWER presents kids with the information they need to become better punctuators. Terban's voice is both energetic and fun. Now available in paperback, this guide can be put in school bags and brought to school, the library, or anywhere else a child would need it.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 4-9-In the first part of this book, Terban helps set readers straight on apostrophes, commas, hyphens, parentheses, and many other punctuation marks, all alphabetically arranged. Within each section, rules are printed in blue type, followed by an explanation in black, and examples using both colors. The cartoon illustrations are also in blue. The second section explains bibliographies, direct quotes, play scripts, and sentences, and the kinds of punctuation marks they take. Children will find this book helpful as they try to craft writing assignments. The examples and the pictures help keep the tone light. Terban's Checking Your Grammar (Scholastic, 1994) includes a section on punctuation, but it is not as complete. Neither is the section in Dave Kemper's Writers Express (Great Source, 1995). Consider purchasing both a reference and circulating copy of Punctuation Power.
