Kid's Word Cookbook 3

Scott Ravede

A “word” cookbook challenges you to eat your words in a series of wordplay “dishes” with recipes included.A collection of short tongue-twisting wordplay “recipes” that anyone can cook up to make a delightful experience for the mouth and ears. Like any good cookbook worth its salt, this is a book you will want to read over and over again.Television has always been a big competitor for kids’ attention. But nowadays, there are cellphones, tablets, computers, and video games in the mix. Books don’t seem to stand chance under these circumstances. Kids are not going to pick up one up unless it is really fun to read. That’s where Kids Word Cookbook comes in. Not only is Kids Word Cookbook a blast to read, it is educational to boot. Filled with homophones, homonyms, heteronyms, alliteration, tongue twisters and other forms of wordplay, it challenges both kids and adults with its “recipes.” Each story also usually has a twist or surprise ending to add another layer of interest, and comes with a recipe instructing the reader on how to make that particular “dish” out of a list of wordplay “ingredients.” There is a glossary of wordplay terms in the front of the book. With the recipes guiding children as to which elements are in each story, it is also an opportunity for them to learn new ideas about language. This is one book kids and parents will love to read over and over again.
