Where Do You Look?by Marthe Jocelyn
Synopses & Reviews
A delightful new book about homonyms, dressed up in colorful collage, and told with humor. This is a concept book that is sure to delight both young readers, and their parents and teachers. Where Do You Look? introduces the concept of words that sound the same but mean different things, in playful text and illustration - where do you look for glasses, you might ask, on the table full of water, or on the end of your nose?
A charming collection of pictures and words that entertains while it teaches, providing a visual feast for the young, by award-winning, critically acclaimed author and illustrator, Marthe Jocelyn, and her daughter, Nell.
Where do you look for glasses? On a shelf? Or on a face?
In this playful exploration of homonyms, readers will discover the fun they can have with language. Is a wave at a beach? Or at a train station? Is a trunk in a garden? Or on an elephant? Kids will love the juxtaposition of words and meanings, and the detailed collage illustrations will have them coming back again and again.
The mother and daughter team of Marthe and Nell Jocelyn know where to look for a story: Not in a skyscraper, but in the dictionary!
Another collage art picture book by the critically acclaimed mother/daughter team of Marthe and Nell Jocleyn. In this book, the concept of homonyms - words that sound and look the same, but have different meanings - is playfully introduced. There's nowhere better to look, it turns out, than on the page right under your nose - where caps, and matches, and glasses and things, are delightfully displayed in all their dual meanings.
Another fabulous picture book by award-winning, critically acclaimed collage artists, Marthe Jocelyn, and her talented daughter, Nell. An exploration of language, that feels more like a frolic in fabric.
