This book shows the importance of commas through multiple funny examples. The first example, which the book is titled for, is that a panda bear comes into a library and shoots an arrow and then leaves. The panda does this because the book about pandas says they “eats, shoots & leaves” the book means they “eat shoots and leaves” but the comma changes the meaning completely. This is an important lesson for kids. This book is not really a story but just a collection of humorous examples. It reminds me of the Amelia Bedilia series. I think this book is perfect for a ELA lesson and would make learning about commas fun and memorable for students. ( )

This book shows how important commas are when writing. It uses humor to show the different meanings that one statement can have simply by adding or removing commas.
This book is very informative and would definitely have a place in an ELA classroom library. However, it is not particularly useful to the subject of mathematics unless addressing carefully writing word problems. For this reason, I would not have it in my mathematics classroom library. ( )

This funny book shows the importance of commas and their placements. Many students, of all ages, struggle with commas and where they should go that why this book is great for everyone. The back of the book even includes some comma rules to help explain why the funny sentences throughout the book did or didn't make sense. ( )

This book is about the importance of commas and how the absence of one tiny looking comma can completely change the entire meaning of a sentence. Not only was this book very informative, it was also very funny as well. I gave this book five stars because I really enjoyed reading it and learned a grammar lesson as well. This would be a great book to read in an English classroom because most kids could care less about grammar but this book would really get their attention while teaching them a lesson as well. ( )

Eats, Shoots & Leaves is all about the importance of a comma. The author gives multiple examples of different scenarios where adding a comma can make two separate statements. Although commas seem to be a small mark on a page, they are one of the most important punctuations in writing, and this book does an awesome job of making it understandable. Since this book can be used in any content area, for any writing assignment, I rate this book 5/5. Commas are very important in everyday language and it can benefit every student and teacher in making their writing better. ( )
