The King Who Rained
by Fred Gwynne


by Fred Gwynne

This title is several decades old. I remember it from my own elementary school days! Yet it's still a hit with kids and great resources for teaching homophones.

Comical illustrations show a bewildered young girl who gets tripped up over homophones (ie: a king who rained, foot prince in the snow, bear feet...) This results in funny situations that also effectively teach homophones.
