The Lovereading4Kids comment

From Arachibutyrophobia (it means the fear of peanut butter sticking to the top of your mouth) to xanthochroism and Zamboni (animals that are bright yellow and those big machines that smooth the ice at ice rinks respectively) this book is full of words that are wonderful to look at and say out loud. Why say pretty when you can use pulchritudinous is the message and it’s hard to resist. Children will love sounding out the words and using them to impress friends and relatives, and it’s a simple but effective way to encourage a love of language. There are clear but entertaining definitions for each word while the playful illustrations, full of busy little children and animals, make it even more appealing and accessible. ~ Andrea Reece
