This picture book examines multiple meanings of common words. It begins, “Where do you look for a cap? On a tube of toothpaste? Or on your head?” The accompanying illustrations are bright and simple. They appear to be cut-and-paste collage.
Words examined are cap, button, tongue, glasses, match, wave, trunk, letter, and story. (Story is spelled story when referring to the levels of the building.)
I think this book would be useful in a classroom. I don’t think it’s the kind of book a child would read repeatedly on his or her own. It is cleverly done, however, and should encourage interesting discussion about the English language.
