Reviews

Booklist Online - Angela Leeper

"Straightforward text explains that periods are always busy telling readers when to end sentences and avoid run-on strings of words; a wave of unpunctuated text flooding the pages offers a good metaphor. . . .Set against bright pinks, reds, and blues in digital, geometric illustrations, oversize and comic-style dots add more punctuation details and plenty of amusement through conversational speech bubbles." - Booklist Online

Kirkus Reviews

"Dahl emphasizes the sentence-ending job of a period, devoting a few pages to its use in abbreviations. Garbutt poses the roly-poly periods, who sport stick arms and legs and expressive faces, in humorous situations. . . .The pink, purple, and blue palette gives the book a retro feel; text that is not a part of the story plays a role in providing readers with examples. . . .Fills the bill for small-group educational settings..." - Kirkus Reviews
