Highly recommend for classroom teachers!

My 8 and 10 year old read this book together immediately after receiving it. WE LOVE IT!! As a teacher and mom, I appreciate the simple text, but that the author didn't shy away from great vocabulary (flummoxed, deflated). Additionally, it is super clever that once the question mark shows up, she speaks in nothing but QUESTIONS! This book begs for rereading so you can linger to notice the facial expressions of each period and the way the exclamation mark changes from the beginning to the end. Highly recommend for K-2 teachers who are trying to get the point across in terms of teaching varying types of punctuation marks. However, older students can also benefit from the way the author uses humor that younger kids will miss as well as to address those students who OVERUSE exclamation marks. I plan to do an author study of Amy Krouse Rosenthal next month to explore her other titles with my first graders.
