A good children's book explaining in an easy to understand and colorful way why grammar is so important, even in a world filled with text messages. Admittedly, when I put a hold on this I thought I was getting the adult version, but I read the kid's version anyway.

Doesn't provide any great detail - could be useful with an ESL class
