Dear Deer a Book of HomophonesET74
Homophones are words that sound the same but are spelled differently and have different meanings, such as moose (the animal) and mousse (the dessert). Note to the Reader While any early reader or writer can get tripped up by homophones, they can be especially tricky for young braille users who may have heard the words, but have never come across them in writing. Available in print and contracted UEB braille.
In Dear Deer, author Gene Barretta uses homophones in simple, sometimes silly sentences, placing the same-sounding words into a context that clearly demonstrates their meaning and usage.
Clever Aunt Ant has just moved to the zoo. Speaking in homophones, she describes the quirky animal behavior she sees. There's the MOOSE who loved MOUSSE and ATE EIGHT bowls, and the WHALE who was ALLOWED to WAIL ALOUD - and that's just for starters.
This playful book introduces children to the richness of language through the concept of homophones. After reading it, don't be surprised when kids start asking, ""How's that spelled?
