The Lovereading4Kids comment

February 2017 Fascinating Facts Book of the Month Children will find this book useful, effective and helpful, as well as fun, entertaining and stimulating. Busy, colourful spreads themed by subject or setting are full of little scenes, each one accompanied by lists of words to help children to be more precise or to increase their vocabulary. On the animals page, for example parrots ‘copy, mimic, imitate’; a bear’s fur is ‘soft, fuzzy, bushy, shaggy’; here children will also learn words such as camouflaged, carnivore and herbivore, as well as bedraggled and dishevelled. There are pages dedicated to telling a story, encouraging children to put all these new words to use. Well designed and really attractive to look at this is a book to inspire a love of language. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Big Picture Thesaurus by Rosie Hore

What would you do if your teacher told you to stop using the word "nice" so much? If you had the Big Picture Thesaurus, you might thumb through it until you found "nice" between "new" and "noise." Then you'd find your options: "pleasant," "agreeable," "good-natured," "delightful," and "fantastic". At this point, you might be scratching your head deciding which word to use, but once you find it you'll be a more pleasant, agreeable, good-natured, delightful and fantastic writer for your efforts.
