Teach Your Children Well

Paula from Baltimore, who has not one but TWO blogs, sent me this photo of something that her first-grade son wrote:

As a librarian, Paula was pleased that her son understands the appeal of books but dismayed by the punctuation error. "Intuitive spelling is so cute," Paula writes. "But the misplaced apostrophe? That demanded immediate correction."

I always enjoy receiving e-mails from readers, so keep 'em coming!

Also, my aunt sent me this article from The Onion about punctuation. I, love, it.

Speaking of my relatives, my mom recently started a hilarious blog of her own. Check it out!

That's generally how I feel about books. :)

Your mom's blog is hilarious indeed!

Is it normal for me to now question whether or not every apostrophe I employ really needed a job?

Becky said...

Yes, that's totally normal. I'm glad you like my mom's blog! She rocks.
