Make Your Mark!
! by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld. Scholastic, 2013.
Okay, how could an English teacher not love the cover of this book? EXCLAMATION MARK is about someone who stood out from the outset. This was not a good thing as he wanted to fit in with everyone else. Eventually, though, he discovers his true purpose and heads out to share the GOOD NEWS! Written on paper with lines that looks very much like an old Big Chief Tablet, this book provides a teachable moment. However, I hope more will elect to read it aloud and see what happens. <673>
