5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out loud funny for the whole family!!! 7 Oct. 2013
By Lana E. Florida - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Normally I don't write reviews. After searching for a book for my son, I stumbled upon this one. He pulls this out every few days and takes a read as if it is new information. I just love the way this book makes him want to learn and know more about words. He has thus graduated to similes and metaphors and he is just 6!!! This book is in black and white, which for us adds to the mystery of determining what the pictures are saying. The ease of simple sentences is another plus. We carry this with us to extended family and enjoy the riddle-like questions. This turned into a full fledged game against groups of family members at once! I'm glad to say I wasn't the only one dusting the cobwebs off my brain while racing against younger opponents. What a surprise! Most delightful and impressive!! Would like to see more with the same structure. Also, a note that having the answers at the bottom of each page sure makes a little fellow feel very in charge of his knowledge. Well done!!! So grateful for such a quality book. I am about to order other texts by the author. Don't change a thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars genious and funny 11 April 2013
By Angel Help - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This little book is brilliant. I work with children K-5th grade and we either read it together or the older ones can read it themselves. It is an eyeopener for the younger ones, that the homonyms sound the same but have a complete different meaning.
The book stimulates different brain cells of the children. The children learn quickly with this book, because it also makes them laugh.

I am a teacher so I bought this book to use the homonyms as quic brain teasers to start my classes out with. The students love these and it's fun to see their minds working to figure them out each day. The only negative is the book is a bit short. I believe there are about 30-40 homonym riddles.
