A book to inspire and support teachers to explore and teach amazing words.
A resource to widen the vocabulary of teachers and the children they teach.
When children are inspired by, and begin to love, words their literacy learning and engagement in writing can be transformed.
The words presented in this book are not often in use. Words that are forgotten, unusual, largely un-known. For each word, an image inspires teachers and children to think more about the word and how it can be used. This book elevates writing through the use of a wider vocabulary but also through visual prompts to support composition and story-making.
This highly visual book inspires teachers and children to love words, to explore them and to want to know more about what they mean, how they are used and where they came from.
