Where Do You Look? by Marthe Jocelyn and Nell Jocelyn -- ADVISABLE

Jocelyn, Marthe and Nell Where Do You Look?  32 pgs. Tundra Books, 2013. $15.95. PICTURE BOOK.

In this exploration of the concept of homonyms, colorful, collage-like illustrations accompany text asking children where they would look for such things as caps (on a tube of toothpaste or on a head?) and tongues (in a shoe or in a mouth?).

Some choices are a little more obscure than others and may not be self-explanatory to children, defeating the purpose to some degree. Still, it's a nice introduction and would be a good start to a lesson on homonyms.
