Playing with Words
I SCREAM ICE CREAM! A BOOK OF WORDLES by Amy Krouse Rosenthal with illustrations by Serge Bloch. Chronicle, 2013.
Look at the title and you have an idea of how this book works. I Scream and Ice Cream sound alike and so do the other wordles that are in the book. Readers will glimpse one variation: REINDEER for example. Then, after they turn the page they will see the same sounds but written differently and with a different illustration: RAIN, DEAR in this instance. The crazy word play continues. Some are easy to guess and others, not so much. See what you can make of this: SORRY, NO MORE FUNNEL CAKES. Want to know its wordle? Get the book!
