Short and Sharp!

August 30, 2016

"Brevity is the soul of wit." These clever books impress with their witty--and brief--wordplay.

Wordplay was one way we always had fun with my father when we were little. Finding out how you could tell a story with only a few words, or using words that sound alike but have different meanings, made us giggle over and over again! 

Enjoy the wordplay in these short and sassy books for young children.
