This fun book shows animals and the synonyms that describe them. A chick is petite, tiny, itty- bitty; a whale is gigantic, immense, enormous...
Readers learn synonyms for large, small, hungry, fast, slow, and more--all via the proud exclamations of animals who possess that trait.
we assumed this book would be for toddlers, but it's actually ideal for
showing kids in the early grades the great variety of
synonyms that exist for many different words. A handful of words are
too advanced for this audience (ie: somnolent, insatiable) but the
message about synonyms is still a good one. School Library Journal
said "teachers looking for an innovative way to introduce synonyms and
superlatives will certainly find much to work with here." We agree.
