Another comical approach to teaching homonyms and homophones via pairing words into odd scenarios. While this is one of the most fun and engaging on this list, quite a few of the words will be unfamiliar to young children (ie; what child knows that a young ox is called a steer or a young goat is called a kid).

But, if you are okay with this book being a vocabulary builder as well a homonym lesson, this is a great choice.


Interest Level:  Kindergarten - 2nd grade

(Although the cover says this book is for PreS-K, we think K-Gr.2 is more appropriate given the vocabulary. In fact, it might be too high for Kindergarten.)
