Little ‘i’ arrives at school only to realize that he has lost his dot. The other alphabet letters try to help him find a replacement for his dot with hilarious results. Each alphabet letter brings him something that begins with their letter. Letter ‘b’ brings a balloon. Little ‘p’ presents a pretzel. Little ‘d’ dashes over with a donut. Little ‘r’ races over with a ring. It’s so cute and funny to see what crazy things the alphabet letters will suggest to replace little ‘i’s dot. I loved the whole adorable story! The letters are all so sweet to want to help, but in the end, it’s up to little ‘i’ to decide what to do.

The punctuation family moves into town and begins to attend school. All the alphabet letters are confused about what job punctuation is supposed to do when they all get together to make words. They learn about exclamation point, and question mark, and period. However, little comma gets pushed to the side. He just slows things down. When things get too rowdy in the classroom, the alphabet letters learn that they need comma after all. This story is so cute and funny! Poor little comma, he’s not sure where he is supposed to fit in. It’s so adorable how the letters in the classroom learn about punctuation and make words together.

The illustrations are colorful and bright, and all the little alphabet characters are so cute! I loved how the artwork really brings the characters to life and shows their personalities.

These would be such a great books for a little reader who is just learning to read! Completely adorable!
