What language lesson doesn't seem like a lesson?

The fun guessing game inside this book! Clever word groupings list three things that are alike and one that it is different. For example, there are living rooms, bedrooms, and bathrooms, but a mushroom is not a room!

Picture clues will help kids figure out which thing is different and begin to grasp fine-tuned nuances of word parts, roots, and meanings. In addition, the text's guessing-game approach invites kids into a call-and-response dynamic. This title is a great companion to the well-received Do You Know Which Ones Will Grow? and What Is Part This, Part That?
