Gr 2-5-Through rhyming wordplay, Cleary explains two parts of speech that are often difficult to understand. First, he tackles homonyms: "`May I sail with you in May/and coast all along the coast?'/These words are a blast/if you say them quite fast,/like/`Why don't we toast/with some toast?'" Some examples of the homophones (Mary, merry, marry; Barry, bury, berry) may pose problems for regional dialects. Gable took ample advantage of the pairings to create zany cartoons that provide visual clues for readers. The grouping of each set of homophones and homonyms by color is also a helpful tool. Another fun and effective introduction to the world of grammar.-Maura Bresnahan, High Plain Elementary School, Andover, MA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
