Telling Tails: Fun with Homonyms by Laura Hambleton, Sedat Turhan
This humorous, imaginative look at homonymswords that sound the same but have different meaningsinvites children to have fun with words that can be tricky to say, spell, and understand. Vibrant illustrations and witty text point out the absurd possibilities in selecting the wrong homonyms, such as a cake that needs flower instead of flour, or a person who is feeling a little horse today. A reference at the end of the book helps children solidify the difference between sets of words that sound exactly alike.
