Picture Book Month: Reading and Writing

27 Nov

27What better book to explore when taking about reading and writing than a picture book biography about the man who created the thesaurus that we know and love today. Roget liked words and he liked writing lists, so he combined these two loves and published his first book of word lists which included over 15,000 words. This is a fun introduction into the story of a book that has remained in print since 1852. With Bryant and Sweet, you know a picture book biography won’t just contain some dates and events, but will contain picture to pour over that incorporate both the words of the story with additional research to make this a fun book for kids (and adults) of all ages!

Title: The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus
