Oooooh, I love this book. It had been sitting on my wishlist for many months, maybe even years, then I finally bought it. The third graders were absolutely amazed by it today, and even the eighth graders seemed to appreciate the farewell pages I copied for them from this lovely alphabet book, the worst one ever. Is there a better way to teach silent letters (or anything else for that matter) than through fun and games? I am definitely going to use it with other groups as well.

My baby is 10 weeks old, so we'll revisit this when she learns to talk but I figure it doesn't hurt to read out loud everything and there's big pictures for her to look at.

Really fun exploration of word exceptions, with a glossary in the back for those tricky things! I also thought it interesting they mention that a British accent will drop the r in words like "hard", but then "herbalism" was on the H page and I'm fairly certain some dialects will still pronounce it in that word.

"What the heck is a banned book anyway? It's when one group of people decides that no one should be allowed to read a certain book, and they try to remove that book from libraries and schools..."

Haldar takes the premise of book banning to its logical conclusion, getting rid of books on giraffes, then hippos, dinosaurs, even regular old beds. Eventually, EVERYTHING is banned, even the ending of the book!

Makes an important point in a humorous way.

Note on the back endpaper: "We don't want our books to disappear (like the ending to this one did!). Just keep reading and sharing books - and remember, even if a book isn't for you, it could still be perfect for someone else."… (mer)

Such a fun way to teach a young kid about homonym's. This book is filled with witty word plan and fantastic and engaging illustrations.

I love the fact that the back of the book contains a glossary for the various words used.
