Laughing Day/El Dia para Reir
Wouldn't it be wonderful if there were a children's book that would not only entertain, but contained a message that would help our children lead happier lives? Well, there is and Laughing Day is it! This engaging children's story will warm your heart and perhaps bring a tear to your eye.
Laughing Dayis another delightful story written in both English and Spanish. Oolong, a young lad from the village of the Boologs, searches for Pickled Palamadora, a delicacy that his mother has sent him to buy for the up coming Laughing Day celebration.
To his dismay, there is none to be found and he is sent off to the village of the Grumpies to find some. (Grumpies are a group of very disagreeable elves.) This sets the stage for an extraordinary adventure.
Oolong must pass through the scary Dark Forest in order to get to the Grumpiesí village. Along the way, he learns a valuable life lesson from a wise old man who helps him when his pushcart looses a wheel. Oolong teaches this lesson to the Grumpies he encounters. A marvelous and wonderful thing happens when he returns home for the Laughing Day celebration.

of all ages."

Punctuation Pals is an entertaining way to learn how to use punctuation. Cool art and interactive stickers makes this a must have for any youngster's library.
Mr. Period, the narrator, tells a humorous story in which common punctuation marks are used. After the story he explains that it was his 'Punctuation Pals' that made the story easy to read. He introduces himself as the traffic cop for all written words and shows where and how to use himself. He does the same for his 'Punctuation Pals' in a way that makes there usage easy to understand.
All the punctuation marks are color coded (Like this: blue for the period; red for the exclamation mark; green for the question mark, etc.) to aid in learning there placement and proper usage. At the end of the book there is an interactive short story with no punctuation but with specially color coded underscore lines. In the back of the book are reusable punctuation stickers that can be placed and replaced into that story. This book is a lot of fun for all ages! Dr. Hope's Punctuation Pals features delightfully colorful illustrations by cartoonist/illustrator, Richard Pinson.
