Item Description...
An analogy is a comparison between two things. It points out the similarities between two things that might be different in all other respects. Analogies cause us to think analytically about forms, uses, structures, and relationships.
This all-time favorite resource not only gives students a chance to practice solving analogies, but also invites them to open their minds to a completely new way of analyzing the elements of analogies. Each page introduces several categories of analogies. Each category expands students' way of viewing the world and contrasting and comparing elements. "Thinking Through Analogies" also instills the tools whereby students can create relationships to enhance their creative and formal writing, as well as to heighten their critical thinking in test taking.

More About Bonnie Risby, Dave Black, George Beard, Cheryl A. Magazine, Ralph De Wit, Paul Collier & Jon Buller

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Bonnie Lou Risby grew up in the Illinois woodlands atop the limestone bluffs across the Mississippi River from St. Louis. These woods were her playground where she and her siblings camped out, played detective, and enjoyed the beauty of the outdoors in every season. After attending college at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville, she taught school in Columbia, IL, for 13 years. She has taught elementary school, middle school, and high school, concentrating on the subjects of French, English, and gifted education. When Risby helped write the grant to establish Columbia's Gifted Program in the early 1970s, there were few materials readily available that fit well with a one-period per week pullout program.
After the birth of her son, Risby retired from teaching and joined a family and marriage counseling practice for 12 years, continuing to write and create logic books in her spare moments. Retired from her therapy practice, she now works in a family business with her husband and son in Ballwin, MO. Risby has continued to write classroom books, chapter books, magazine articles, and books for young adults.
Besides writing, Risby loves taking float trips down Ozark streams, biking, long walks with her dog, gardening, family history, and travel.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good for Defining amd Categorizing Analogies but...  Nov 9, 2008
The book has a 2005 Copyright but is dated: My 8 year-old did not know typewriters had ribbons, and truckers mainly communicated by CB radios.

Also, the printing looks like a cheap photocopies. You get much better quality from an average computer printer. The book is folded and stapled 11 x 17 sheets with a glossy cover and only about 40 pages.

Overall though it is worth buying if you are trying to teach a child analogies.

Update 11/20/08:
A couple more things now that I am done with the book:

It is labeled "Grades 3-6": However, my 3rd grader had trouble with words like: philatelist, numismatist, caduceus, dulcimer, appaloosa and palomino.

There are also some typos like on page 21, the "Lesson" states that "roof:house :: man:hat" also raccoon is misspelled on the same page. In addition, the exact same analogy occurs on two pages in a row. A more minor point is that each page has an illustration, but at times the illustration does not have any relevance to any of the words on the page.

It appears that the book did not have thorough proof reading. If I spend $10 on a book, I expect someone would have sat down for a couple of hours and corrected the obvious mistakes.
Alalogies  Jul 9, 2008
This is an excellent guide to doing analagies. My only complaint is that it is short. However, very worthwhile.
