No Reading Allowed: The WORST Read-Aloud Book Ever

We rated this book:


“What happens when you say things that sound the same but are spelled differently? You get the same sentence with a totally different meaning thanks to homonyms. But the book lives up to its name because it is weird to read the same sounding sentence twice.

What a clever idea to use homonyms in this way. If you get the meaning this book is hilarious. If you do not you will soon. I think this is an awesome, funny teaching tool for children learning about homonyms.

The pictures are laugh out loud hilarious. Example: The hero had supervision. A panel of a superhero with supervision. The hero had supervision. A panel of a boy overlooking a giant hero sub sandwich. Sir Francis Bacon. A picture of Sir Francis Bacon the man. Sir, France is bakin’! A picture of a hot day in southern France at the beach.

I think kids will be into this because of the funny nature of the illustrations. The age range for this book is six to eight years old and maybe older if using this as a teaching tool.”
