The English language is filled with strange rules that can be tricky for youngsters just learning to read and spell. But spelling lessons get a fun makeover with this collection of "60 poems to boost reading and spelling"
skills, silly illustrated rhymes that are as fun as they are instructive! Most of the poems focus on the sounds of different letter pairings ("Ridiculous Ph," "The Sh in Your Shoe"), but several tackle silent letters ("The B on Your Thumb"), handy memory tricks for spelling ("Separate," "Definite"), and pesky homophones ("Which Witch?"). Tips for grown-ups for how to use the book—and tips for young readers for how to be patient with their grown-ups—round out this delightful anthology, which demands (really!) to be read again and again!
