Jen Bryant does a great job at sharing with young readers the life of Peter Mark Roget.
I really enjoyed this book and the style of making lists to describe things in the story. I learned many things about Peter Mark Roget and his many accomplishments. I marvel that the first Thesaurus was arranged by the meaning of the words instead of the words in ABC order. I imagine I would have a hard time looking for the just right word in the first edition. I'm thankful for his hard work and his sharing his lifetime passion of making lists. Because he has shared his lists made into a book it is easy for all of us to find just the right word in all we say and write.
This book is a Caldecott Honor book and a Robert F. Sibert Medal winner. It is one I'm sure you and your family will enjoy.
After reading this book go outside, just like he did, and create a list of your own.
Happy Daily Reading
