Synopsis

Double-Talk Word Sense & Nonsense by Zora Aiken, David Aiken

Ages birth to 6 years. This book invites children to explore homophones and shows them that words can be fun. Pairs of deliberately ambiguous words are presented in rhyming verse and illustrations across thirteen double-page spreads. On each spread, the words may sound the same, but they are used to describe two very different images. Readers must study the art to see how the words relate to the pictures. Serious or silly? Sense or nonsense? Either way, the readers will learn to study words more carefully. With the simple surprises spelled out in the illustrations, the I-get-it! smile grows into a full-body giggle. This laughter-inducing book is ideal for young readers and the adults that love them.
