Item description for Flip-a-Word: Quack Shack by Yukiko Kido...
Overview Humorous illustrations and die-cut pages introduce words of the same family, such as "sock," "lock," and "block," and then combine them in often-improbable phrases, including "socks on a lock," and "block on a sock."
Publishers Description These unique, interactive early reading books invite children to flip the pages and discover different words and pictures, with the shared word ending showing through a die cut at the bottom of the page. The use of word families helps children to recognize similarities between words that rhyme, and the bright, humorous illustrations in a Japanese anime style will keep the attention of both kids and parents. Featured word family: Quack Shack -ack (quack, sack, shack, jack), -ick (lick, chick, sick, kick), -ock (block, lock, rock, sock)
