Story Element #7: WORD PLAY

Story Element #7: WORD PLAY
Welcome to the WORD PLAYGROUND! This is the WORD PLAY page of the Story Elements. It's likely to be a very long list of picture books that use metaphors, puns, cool verbs, synonyms, alliteration, interesting vocabulary, onomatopoeia, and the like. Some just for fun. Some more like lyrical poetry.

Pick a toy and start playing (the swings, the slide, the court):

  1. The Library Dragon by Carmen Agra Deedy
  2. Porcupining: A Prickly Love Story by Lisa Wheeler
  3. Gertrude is Gertrude is Gertrude is Gertrude by Jonah Winter
  4. Welcome to the ICE HOUSE by Jane Yolen


  1. I love the story elements lists you are putting together. I haven't had a chance to add to the list but I intend to!

  2. Books by Rick Walton. I especially love Once There Was a Bullfrog. It's on compound words and so much fun. Once you read it, you'll want to check out his other books.


I love hearing from you! Share your thoughts below.
