A picture book that helps kids learn punctuation? I'm a little curious as to how an author can manage this, :). I actually have not read shoots And Leaves. I wonder if it was intentionally titled to be similar to Shoots and Ladders. Ok, cheesy reference, but just got up, and I'm not a morning person. There, excuse out of the way. At any rate, I was quite pleased to see that Elements Of Style is in the collection. I'm taking English Comp II as a summer class, and my teacher recommended it. And the MLA Handbook is there, which is also neat. It's a dull read, but it's beneficial. I know there's even an APA handbook in the collection, though it's not precisely called that. I have a history paper due Monday, so I might just download that again. I can't find it, and I don't remember what it's called. Oh well. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Grandma Cindy" <popularplace@xxxxxxxxx>

Welcome, Rosie. You'll fit right in. We have several singers, as well as professional pianists, and, of course, many, many book lovers. Ad lots of college students, both undergraduate and graduate and those who have just finished advanced degrees. If you like grammar books, have you read Eats, Shoots and Leaves? It's in the collection. BTW, folks, the author, Lynne Truss, has written another book, The Girl's Like Spaghetti: Why, You Can't Manage without Apostrophes! This is a picture book of 32 pages intended for ages 9 - 12. There's also a picture book version of Eats, Shoots and Leaves for grades 1 - 3 . It's smart of the author and publisher to do that to help kids learn proper punctuation. Cindy --- Rosie <nothingbutlime@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:Hey guys! My name is Rosie. I'm a brand new volunteer, and I just added myself to the list. So I just thought I'd introduce myself. I'm eighteen years old, and I'll be a sophomore when I return to college this fall. I'm a communications major, and I'm auditioning to be a musical theater minor in September. I've been totally blind since birth. I've always loved to read; my parents couldn't take books away from me. I was the odd kid that read grammar books during my free time because I was fascinated with the english language. Weird I know. I write for pure enjoyment during my free time. Mostly, I write poetry, but I also keep a livejournal. I also sing and have perfect pitch. I'm a sister of Sigma Alpha Iota, an all-women's music fraternity. I took four years of private voice, sang in choir throughout my high school and grammar school years, and I'll be taking chorale this fall with this really awesome professor (yay for awesome profs!) I'm blunt, open, free spirited, and I make people laugh without trying. I love people--even some that everyone hate. Well, that's me in a nut shell. I'm looking forward to working with all of you.
