Dear,O'Brien Family

Hanging out at our local library is one of our family's favorite things to do. The only problem we have is limiting the number of books that Alice checks out. I'm pretty sure she would rent all of the books at once if she could!

In today's grammar lesson, I'll teach you when to use apostrophes. They only have three purposes. Can you name all three?

Happy Learning,

Elizabeth O'Brien
