Product Details


“[W]ill make children laugh and learn in equal measure.” —School Library Journal

“[R]eaders . . . will come away with a new appreciation for the value of these inconspicuous dots and squiggles.” —Booklist

Babble! is Harold and the Purple Crayon for the grammarian . . . it’s a collective effort to make sense of the way we all communicate with each other. This picture book . . . reminds us not to take these symbols for granted.” —San Francisco Book Review

“Caroline Adderson gives children (and adults) an easy way to remember how and when to use punctuation marks. . . . Babble! will make a useful classroom tool and an enjoyable independent reading book for young learners. Highly recommended.” —CM Reviews

“Inventive and engaging. . . . [A] finely crafted fable about the importance of communication, language, listening, understanding and cooperation. . . . Sure to become a classic favourite, Babble! And How Punctuation Saved It is an invaluable resource.” —Canadian Children’s Book News

“[A] charming little book. . . . Babble! is a delightful parable that will instruct and entertain both young and old alike.” —The Dispatch

“One of the most inventive illustrated children’s books. . . . [R]eaders leave the book with a healthy respect for words and the tools they need to do their job. Babble!’s subtle mix of practical knowledge and poetic fancy will send readers back to the book many times.” —Imaginary Elevators
