Where do you look? What do you see? Simply through words and the environment they're placed in, meaning changes completely. For example: Where do you look for a wave? At the train station? [People waving hands] Or at the beach?

What a delightful, riddle-me-this, I-spy book of language play this is.

Where do you look is a book that offers the experience to explore different meanings of words. It allows readers to have fun with language and its meaning. This book focuses on words with more than one meaning-like glasses in the cupboard and glasses on your face. This will be great for learning literacy skills.

Where do you look for a button? On a shirt or on a telephone? Well, both of course! Take a fun look into the English language with this book about homonyms. The intricate cut paper illustrations are a joy to peruse. Children will love creating examples of homonyms of their own for an extension activity. For ages 5-8.

This is a cute book that explores the concept of homonyms. The artwork, rendered in paper collage and mixed media, is very bright and attractive. This would be great to have in the classroom library, especially when studying this particular subject.

This is a really great book. Great cut paper art. Clear pictures. And clear demonstration of homonyms. The great question, where do you look, leads the reader through the story, so it is like a game. I love how it comes back to books at the end. I might even use this for storytime.

Grades 2-5. Where do you look for a cap? A match? A button? It all depends on context. These homophones are a great introduction to research terms and choosing the right tool for the job. Might use at the beginning of my research unit for 4th grade.

In this book homonyms are taught by asking questions and pondering while looking at the big colorful pictures that go along with them. It was a great way to show the kids that one word can have more than one meaning.

Great book to introduce to kindergartners about homonyms, the same words with different meanings. It also will help with critical thinking. the writing is in big to promote reading skills and print awareness.

A playful exploration of homonyms reveals how preschoolers can have fun with language, posing such questions as whether to find glasses on a shelf or a face and whether to find a wave at the beach or a train station.

Homonyms galore, some more obvious than others, some closer in meaning, and others more varied. I wanted to add some more, could be a fun class activity.
