The book is an entertaining educational tool designed to engage adult readers learning English. The four key words of each analogy are in CAPITAL letters Each word in capital letters has a related photo to clarify meaning. The analogies are set up to foster predictive skills, which are essential to reading success. The student must make a prediction of the answer based on the first three words of the analogy. A hint is given for additional help. After making the prediction, the student turns the page to learn the answer to the analogy question. This immediate feedback turns learning into a rewarding game. Topics such as culture, math and words of position are introduced. An outstanding balanced education includes having students use their analytical skills to develop critical and creative thinking. Analogies are important because they change the way we think, read and write about the world. The book fosters creativity. It offers the student an opportunity to prove his or her understanding of the concept of analogies by writing an analogy with a hint and then illustrating all four parts. A lesson plan can be found on the website: www.JanZebrack.com. John Pollack has written an excellent book titled: "Shortcut: How Analogies Reveal Connections, Spark Innovation, and Sell Our Greatest Ideas." The Wall Street Journal article reviewing the book is on my website. All profits from this book go to the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals to benefit sick and injured children.
