Learn About Word Origins

My daughter is always asking me how things got their names. I usually have no idea and end up Googling to find out. Now there is a better option! Once Upon a Word – A Word-Origin Dictionary for Kids is great for kids (and adults) who are interested in where words come from.

It features large print, colorful illustrations for each letter of the alphabet, and special sections on food words and musical instruments. There is also a section on common Latin and Greek roots.

This is a great book for learning about how words work and where they came from. It would make a useful addition to a morning time routine or provide fodder for lunch or supper conversation. Once Upon a Word – A Word-Origin Dictionary for Kids is great for kids (and adults) who are interested in where words come from. It is a resource book you’ll look at again and again.
