Synopsis

Rebuses for Readers Puzzles for All Ages by Pat Martin, etc., Joanne (School Librarian and Co-ordinator of Libraries, Urbana, Illinois, USA) Kelly, Kay V. (Elementa Grabow

A rebus is a hieroglyphic of sorts - it combines pictures with letter sounds (adding or subtracting them) to make a word or phrase. Rebuses fascinate children of all ages, and Rebuses for Readers presents more than 100 rebuses of these intriguing brain teasers for elementary students. 50 of the rebuses are based on books, with selections for primary, intermediate and upper grades. An additional 15 are Authors in Rebus Form , 15 are Characters in Rebus Form and 10 are Settings in Rebus Form . The authors have also included some Make Your Own rebuses (with some sample solutions). The final chapter, Challenges , provides students with some basic pictures and a list of book titles for which to create rebuses. Each chapter includes an annotated bibliography of the books on which the rebuses are based; annotations include a brief description, grade level and general subject.
