About the Author

Lynne Chatham holds both a bachelor's degree in education with a major in mathematics and a master's degree in curriculum and instruction. Beginning her tenure in the field of education in 1968, she has found many ways to enrich the educational experiences of children. She taught upper elementary grades, junior high mathematics, English and history, gifted programs for grades 1–8, and education classes at the university level.

Chatham founded Dandy Lion Publications in 1977, creating a publishing house that specialized in curriculum materials that were appropriate for able learners and gifted students, that combined motivating content with challenging activities, and that were easy for teachers to use. In the capacity of owner and editor, she wrote more than 50 books and edited an additional 119 books. Her goal, whether writing or editing, was to create materials that would engage students in thinking, creating, making new discoveries, and applying what they learned to new situations. A person with a great curiosity, she has written curriculum guides on many topics and is always interested in whatever topic she is currently researching or editing.

Chatham has retired from full-time involvement in Dandy Lion Publications and currently consults, writes, and edits on a part-time basis.

Format: Paperback
My daughter's sixth grade teacher gave them some of these analogies for practice. Some of them are really tough, even for me! She did not have the basic knowledge to answer many of them. Examples--satire:slapstick::parable:__ a)Aesop b)entertaining c)lesson d)allegory.
Twain:Finn::Dickens:__ a)Sawyer b)Scrooge c)fictitious d)pseudonym.
pedometer:foot::tachometer:__ a)distance b)car c)speedometer d)thermometer.
I think these would be good practice for older students as well. Good analogies can be hard to find, so try this book if you need practice!

This is the type of summer educational material I incorporated into my children's academic curriculum. This book is not easy. The exercises are wonderful because these are the types of analogies your child has to learn in order to prepare for standardize testing. The answers are in the book. This workbook is one of the best and hardest which is what I was looking for and I ordered a few of these to help them each summer. But they didn't LOVE THEM. But then again, they were not allowed to watch television during the week either which I called, "brain dead activity."

Television could be watched on the weekend. And if anyone doesn't believe me--it has paid off. Everything has it's price later in life. It's the best thing I ever did for all my sons.

I don't see the answers for the review pages. These analogies makes me say "I am not smarter than a 5th grader."
