Exclamation Point by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld -ADVISABLE

Rosenthal, Amy Krouse and Lichtenheld, Tom Exclamation Point 56 pgs. Scholastic Press, 2013 (March). $12.14.  (Rating: G)
When an exclamation point can’t quite find his place or fit in, well it can be really confusing. But with a little help, or in this case, a big push, exclamation point finds out just how powerful his voice is.
I think it’s a bit too whitty for a real-alone picture book. I would buy this for my library –just make sure you show all the teachers! They will thank you for this positively fun way to introduce the Exclamation point to their classes. The artwork is basically as plain as the cover, which works out just right to illustrate the concept.
