Wumbers

Wumbers is a story created with letters and numbers. Letters and numbers are used together to make words and sentences 4 kids 2 figure out!  It's a great book for kids interested in word puzzles. The clues are letters and numbers.  The pictures help too. Here is what the story looks like:

Don't you just love making 4ts?! (Don't you just love making forts?!)

I Like 10ts, 2! (I like tents, 2!)

It's fun.One of my favorite books growing up was CDB! (See the Bee) by William Steig. It does the same thing! In fact, Wumbers is dedicated to William Steig. The author of Wumbers liked CDB! too! L8er allig8or! Author: Amy Rosenthal
