This is a great book that i plan on using again. It teaches students about homophones and homonyms. It allows students to see concrete items so they can get a better understanding.

Introduces homophones and homonyms in a fun, humorous way that kids will love. The rhymes are silly with pictures that match. This makes it a quick and easy read for kids. Homophones and homonyms are defined at the beginning of the book and are highlighted in different colors through out the book. The book ends with a questions that revises the learned information. This would be great in an English class. It would be fun to have students right their own poems about homophones or other parts of language.

I ordered several of the Brain Cleary books for my grandkids and they love them!! The writting and illusrations are funny - very kid friendly The kids find these books fun to read (so they don't mind "extra" reading) and they are learning new words, new phrases, new meanings all at the same time. I keep them on a table beside the couch and alot of times they will pick these books up and be reading while watching TV!
