Subtitled Why, You Can't Manage Without Apostrophes!
I wasn't too successful getting Sugar Bear to read with me for the Read Together project (although he has been reading some Pokemon as well as a few science things on his own). I did pick up Lynne Truss' new children's book for us when I saw it at the library, though, because earlier this year we read Eats, Shoots & Leaves - which shows pictures of the differences in two sentences simply depending on the use of commas - and loved it.
This book does the same thing with apostrophes. I really enjoyed this sort of play with language when I was a child - and, by the way, I'm about half was through reading the grown-up version of Eat, Shoots & Leaves - and I'm glad that Sugar Bear enjoys it too.
His favorite set of sentences in this book:
Children are watching a turtle race
and pointing to the turtle in the back of the pack.
Look, its behind.
Children are looking at some horses,
one of which is facing away from them.
