5.0 out of 5 stars Applause for a great summertime read!
This book gets applause and 5 stars from me. The artwork is colorful, beckoning each reader to come in and have fun.

The rhyming prose speaks in a child's language, engaging them to think in the form of analogies.

"Gull is to sky as shell is to sand. Child is to family as finger is to hand."

3.0 out of 5 stars Analogies are confusing
This text looks poetically at analogies, but does not simplify them for beginners. As a book, it came off somewhat disorganized and flat.

This review is from: Beach Is to Fun: A Book of Relationships (Hardcover)
This book gets applause and 5 stars from me. The artwork is colorful, beckoning each reader to come in and have fun.

The rhyming prose speaks in a child's language, engaging them to think in the form of analogies.

"Gull is to sky as shell is to sand. Child is to family as finger is to hand."

"Water is to wet as towel is to dry. Arm is to swim and wing is to fly."

These are just some of the examples. The sensory detail is rich and inviting. Going on a car journey? What a great game to have your children think of their own analogies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Intro to Analogies, September 12, 2012

This review is from: Beach Is to Fun: A Book of Relationships (Hardcover)
As a speech pathologist in a public school, I love this book to introduce analogies in a fun enjoyable way. The only problem I have with it is one of the analogies is incorrect. One of the analogies was: Knight is to castle as small is to large. ??? That doesn't make sense to me. I changed that analogy and the next one so that it would rhyme: Knight is to castle as dragon is to moat. Road is to wagon as ocean is to boat. (Instead of barge).
