I received the book Wondrous words by Sonia Mehta as a review copy from the publisher. This is the fifth book of the six book Fun With English Series. It is a series of workbooks that focus on teaching English language concepts through fun and challenging activities. Each book is 46 pages long and the cover mentions that it is for children seven and above.
About the FUN WITH ENGLISH SERIES:
Do idioms intimidate you? Do you find proverbs problematic?
Do you look at words and go, what on earth does that mean?
Is punctuation a pain? Fear not, English can be funny language, but it is actually pretty fun to learn too! The Fun with ENGLISH series focuses on all the strange, silly, unusual and fun things that are part of the English language – you’ll never think of words, proverbs, figures of speech, idioms and punctuation as boring again.
Words, words, words. Words that sound the same and mean different things or mean the same thing but sound different; words that are noises and words that have silent letters…there are just so many different kinds of words in English! This book is jam-packed with fun activities for you to learn and practice using new and interesting words.
At the beginning of the book, the author has a note for the parents and teachers. In the note to the kids, the author has explained about synonyms, homophones and homographs.
This book has 22 synonyms, 14 homophones and 12 homographs.
And there are activities like matching, choosing the correct answer, crossword, cracking the code, jumbled words, maze, searching for synonyms. finding mistakes, using the correct homophone, word grid, meanings, matching homographs to pictures.
My favourite was homographs.
I would recommend this book to young and old alike.
