From the Publisher:

Buz Words: Discovering Words in Pairs(tm) by María Felicia Kelley is an Award-Winning Finalist Title in the "Education PreK-12" Category of the USA Book News--Best Books 2006 Book Awards.

How can two words that sound the same mean two different things? And, how in the world can they be spelled differently? Buz is a kid who wants answers and Mom is just the person to help! This 32-page book (ages 4-9) illustrates a string of mother and son conversations where homonyms become the topic of the day.

Kelley coins the phrase "pair words" in lieu of "homonyms" to make the topic more child-friendly, while emphasizing the fun in learning. Early in the text, Buz quickly learns his own name is a pair word, while Mom can't seem to speak without using one. It begins as a backyard adventure that showcases the patience of a mother and the eager-to-learn spirit of a young boy. The characters' dialogue spurs the action in this title, moving them through kid-familiar settings (e.g. a backyard garden, a kitchen, a garage, a neighbor's yard). It's a book that encourages fun with tricky vocabulary and rhythmic verse.

Companion Lesson Plans for the book can be easily accessed through the publisher's website and there's also a Fun & Games page that gives children and students an inviting place to test their knowledge of the pair words (homonyms) presented in the text.

Buz Words: Discovering Words in Pairs(tm) is the first in a series of Buz Words(tm) books.

From the Author:

Writing and illustrating this book was the most fun I've had wearing any of my writer's caps. I owe that to the fun process that is writing for children, but in this case made all the more fun because my oldest son was my sole inspiration. Just learning to eat, we sat at the kitchen table and I encouraged him to, "chew, chew," his food carefully. Recalling the book we'd just read prior to lunch about "choo, choo" trains, the writer in me knew we were on to something. Buz Words: Discovering Words in Pairs(tm) is that something. And, I'm as pleased to be able to share it with you, as I was sharing that lunch of discovery with my son.
