“Homophones are words that sound the same but have different meanings and spellings. Through a visit to the zoo, [The New Gnu Knew] does a good job of explaining the concept to new readers. Each spread introduces three homophones. In the first, zoo workers knew it would be a big day because visitors were coming to see the new gnu. In other spreads, words such as road, rode, and rowed, and cent, sent, and scent come into play. On each spread, the text appears in a large circle with the homophones highlighted and facing an appropriate photo. A smart, entertaining part of the Hear Homophones Here series. ”

School Library Journal,
January 2015

“These three easy readers facilitate homophone awareness through the use of simple language and bold-faced words. Each book takes on a slightly different subject: Rows of Roses emphasizes homophones relating to nature, They Won One! tackles sports, and A Pair of Pears involves fruits and numbers. The books each begin by defining homophones as words that sound similar but that have different spellings and meanings. Each page then lists two homophones and uses concise examples that correlate to the photograph on the page. A variety of clever homophones will get students’ creative juices flowing, such as team/teem, course/coarse, ball/bawl, and one/won. A solid resource. ”—Tracey Wong
