! (aka, Exclamation Point) is a really cute story from Amy Krouse Rosenthal about finding one’s “purpose”, so to speak.
In the story, the titular exclamation point feels out of place with his period friends until he meets a question mark who helps him discover what makes him special.
It’s a really charming and inventive take on the typical “be yourself” moral. I highly recommend it to picture book readers, and I’ll definitely be checking out more from this author in the future. Anyone who can make a story about punctuation interesting is an author worth giving a chance!
