    I’m a recently-former elementary school teacher, and while I haven’t heard of this book, I love “Eats, Shoots and Leaves.” This book sounds like another great addition to the teaching grammar collection!

      Rebecca Scaglione » I liked Eats, Shoots, and Leaves but it’s been a while. I think that was for an adult audience, though? I like this one because it’s obviously for the kids…and yet still introduces the parts of speech in a very fun way!

        I had no idea there was an ADULT one! I only knew of the kids one (http://www.amazon.com/Eats-Shoots-Leaves-Commas-Difference/dp/0399244913/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1348186289&sr=8-2&keywords=eats+shoots+and+leaves).

        I used to read this to my fifth graders. I might have to check out the adult version for myself!

          Rebecca Scaglione » I was at the library the other day and saw that Ms Truss has a few for children now! Yes, I enjoyed the adult one too.
