I'm joining in the Wednesday Nonfiction Picture Book fun for the first time today!
I recently read a book that I am dying to share, and it fits this theme perfectly, which is why I'm here today!
The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus by Jen Bryant, illustrated by Melissa Sweet
Eerdmans Books, 2014
Recommended for grades 2+
Every single inch of this book is:
From the fascinating life story of the mind behind the writing tool we all take for granted, to the quintessential Melissa Sweet collage illustrations, everyone that loves the art of the written word, will:
delight in this special story.
A must add to your personal collection and your classroom library. I can't wait to share this story with my 3rd and 4th grade students...but I want to wait until we are ready! As my students grow as writers this text will be even more significant to them.
Thanks for stopping by!
