Aunt Ant has just moved to the zoo. She speaks in homophones as she
describes the quirky animal behavior she sees. Among the animals she
sees are a moose, a whale, a deer, a toad and a ewe. This picture book,
with its vivid illustrations, introduces children to homophones and an
interesting cast of characters as well.
Homonyms and homophones are super fun to teach because of the funny scenarios that can be created by combining them into one wacky situation or the comic misunderstandings that can take place when some accidentally conjures up the wrong homonym. "Dear Deer" does exactly that and will have your students laughing out loud at the utter silliness. If you are teaching homonyms and homophones, read them this book and they will definitely (1) get the concept, (2) have fun with it, and (3) be itching to create and share their own funny word play riddles!
I recommend this book not only to younger children, but to those who may be struggling to understand some of the rules that can be confusing in the English Language. It is silly and can be read quickly. Repeat exposure will make it second nature.
