This is a fantastic way to "show not tell" how punctuation works. What would happen if punctuation took a vacation? Stories get unruly and time no longer make sense. In fact, communication gets a little unruly. Humorous punctuation postcards convey messages that resemble a punctuation mark's purpose, helping readers understand their proper use. Clever, animated, and a way to make learning fun.
Publisher Summary
Oh, no! Mr. Wright's class can't believe it. All the punctuation marks in the classroom have disappeared. Where can they be? What will the class do without them?

After a lesson goes awry on the hottest, stickiest day of the year, Punctuation decides to go on vacation. Maybe if the kids have to live without punctuation for a while, they'll appreciate all the hard work commas, apostrophes, exclamation points, and question marks do!

Chaos erupts! The class can't read their book, and the letters they write to ask punctuation to come back home are a mess. 

This clever and funny tale shows just how important punctuation is to reading and writing, and helps illustrate how different types work.  From the question mark's inquisitive postcards to the quotations' constant chatter, this story is full of fun detail, elaborated on by bright acrylic illustrations, full of action and personality. 

For more language-arts fun, check out Robin Pulver and Lynn Rowe Reed's other collaborations, including Me First, Happy Endings, and Silent Letters, Loud and Clear.

When all the punctuation marks in Mr. Wright's class decide to take a vacation, the students discover just how difficult life can be without them.
