“I Scream! Ice Cream!: A Book of Wordles” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal is a book with words that sound the same but mean different things just like in the title. The book really got you to think about all the things you say that could really mean something totally different. The pictures made the words even funnier and a lot of the time you really did not get what the author was saying until you looked at the pictures.
I liked this book because I could quiz my brothers and sisters about the words and some of them had them stumped. I would recommend this book to my friends because I think it is fun to read and quiz other people; it is kind of like a riddle book where people have to guess the riddle.
The whole family had fun with this book and Mason enjoyed having people guess the meaning of the words that sounded the same but were in the end completely different.
Overall, “I Scream! Ice Cream!: A Book of Wordles” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal gave everyone a good laugh and was enjoyed by my family.
