Although this is not a book for kids, it’s a fun book. And some of the stuff you can share with your students or children from elementary school up to high school (and college, of course). Even just the title is fun: Okay, so is it Eats, Shoots, and Leaves? (Three actions. . .) or is it Eats Shoots and Leaves (those panda bears love shoots). Show your students how important punctuation is with different examples from this book. Make correcting and learning punctuation and grammar FUN, and your kids won’t dread it so much. They may even become better at it.
Here are a couple of places on the web where you can find more examples like Eats, Shoots and Leaves:
