Word Ladders

bookcover
Author: Valerie Wyatt

By simply changing one letter at a time, wacky things happen in this world!  This word game adventure explores letters and spelling.  Simple changes occur at first (toy becomes boy) leading up to the more complex changes (safe becomes whew).  Silly illustrations reinforce the unrelated word changes creating a comically fun book to read visually as well.  Two thumbs up on the fun approach to exploring words and spelling.
