Every now and then we encounter a new children's book or series that we’re so excited about we want to broadcast it from the rooftop. We've created the Tattered Cover Picture Book of the Month (formerly called Kids' V.I.B.) to highlight real stand-outs among the many delightful and meaningful new editions for young readers.
Our latest selection is:
The Dictionary of Difficult Words by lexicographer Jane Solomon, illustrated by Louise Lockhart
Sternutation (when someone sneezes). Borborygmus (the rumbling in one’s stomach). Ultracrepidarian (having big opinions about things you know nothing about). These are just a few of the delightfully difficult words included in this gorgeously designed book. Full of diverse illustrations and the idea that language is adaptable, this is a wonderful and unique present for word-lovers and bibliophiles young and old. —Bethany Strout, Director of Buying
