Entertaining presentation of some points of grammar

Kids would likely need to be 8 or so to get much out of the grammar discussion, but for them it's a funny presentation and they'll probably learn something. I'd also recommend it to adults. I think this kid version is a better book than the adult version: it gets across some of the main points in a much more concise format.

Humorous comma book

This is a cute story and a great way to teach kids the importance of commas. This book shows the humorous misuse of commas. This book also contains amusing, effective illustrations.
