Odd Couples: One Word, Two Meanings
This witty collection of smart, quirky word pairings shows young readers that homonyms can be a blast (not that kind of blast). Anyone who has ever tried to learn English knows that many of our language's words have more than one meaning. This exciting book takes that idea to a new level, illustrating just how surprising some homonyms can be. In bold, colorful double-page spreads Mirja Winkelmann's delightful illustrations challenge readers to find the one word that fits both images. Swimwear and an elephant's nose, or a flower and the center of an eye: making these visual connections--and thinking up even more--will spark a passion for language in young readers.
