A Bat Cannot Bat, a Stair Cannot Stare:
More about Homonyms and Homophones

Do you think there’s no more to know about homonyms and homophones? This book will prove you wrong! With dozens of laughs per second, the value of the lesson doesn’t lessen the second time around. Playful rhymes and humorous illustrations creatively present fresh examples of homonyms and homophones for young readers. For easy identification, each pair of homonyms or homophones appears in color, and the comical cats help bring each idea to the fore.

A Bat Cannot Bat, a Stair Cannot Stare: More about Homonyms and Homophones turns traditional grammar lessons on end! Read and reread this book aloud and delight in the sense—and nonsense—of words.

Reviews

“[A] lesson on homonyms and homophones is such a natural for the Words Are CATegorical™ series, with its signature combination of fast-paced rhymes and zany illustrations, that the topic is well worth revisiting … An enjoyable mix of wordplay and grammar.” (Booklist)

“As the book claims, ‘the fun doesn’t lessen as you laugh through each lesson.’ Students will not only be repeating these silly verses but will be writing their own as well.” (School Library Journal)
