Exclamation Mark by Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Kristin, Columbine Library

Have you heard of Amy Krouse Rosenthal?  If you haven't- you should read all of her books today!  She is one of my favorite authors and has written many fun, creative books for kids.  Amy's imagination is unlimited and it shows in everything she does.  If you have a few minutes, check out her blog which includes ideas for books, cool videos and lots of other fun stuff.    

Amy's most recent book is titled Exclamation Mark and it is every bit as clever and fun to read as her other books.  

Exclamation Mark just doesn't fit in.  He tries everything to be more like the other puncuations, but his enthusiam just makes him stand out.  Once he meets Question Mark, he discovers maybe it's not so bad to be different?   Maybe it's okay to be enthusiastic?!  A perfect book about celebrating individuality-- and kids might learn a little about punctuation, too!
