"EYE Can Find That !.........by Kenn Vidro
with the help of D & D Printing in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  It was authored and
illustrated by Kenn Vidro.  As a kid growing up Kenn was always a big fan of
"Highlights" Magazine and its monthly hidden picture puzzle.  He thus created a
humorously illustrated collection of alphabetical puzzles with that "hidden" aspect.  
This book starts with items beginning with the letter A hidden among Aliens and
follows through the entire A-Z course having readers using their EYES to spot and
find the items starting with the same letter as the page....C for cats....G for guitars
....etc. It's a book that's sure to please kids of all ages & keep them enthralled for
hours, not to mention being a GREAT vocabulary builder !

Pear Pairs..........by Kenn Vidro
Pear Pairs was published in July of 2008 by Gilbert Square Books with the help of D & D
Printing in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  It was authored and illustrated by Kenn Vidro.  Like the
Square Pear Books, it is a collection of  fun, as well as challenging, word riddles.  These riddles
are called "Pear Pairs".  It's an ideal book for a long trip in the car or a simple  "puzzle-a-day"
use.  It is the first book by Gilbert Square Books with a perfect bind.  
The Random House Unabridged Dictionary (1993 edition) defines the terms homonym and homophone in such a way
that each term includes words that are pronounced alike and have different spellings, and also words that are spelled
alike and have different meanings. But for the sake of confusion this book contains what we, as well as many others,
agree the definitions to be. So here they are……
Homonym or Homophone?
Homonyms are words that have the same spelling and pronunciation as each other but have different meanings as well
as origins….(bow – tied with ribbon/ bow – shoots arrows)
Homophones are words that have the same pronunciation as each other but do have different spellings as well as
meanings….(ad – advertisement/ add – numerical meaning)
It is a great learning tool for educators as well as just a whole lot of FUN for all !
