Delores Thesaurus

We rated this book:


Delores loves words, but she especially loves complex words that she has never heard before, words like “prodigious” and “perambulate” and “impudence.” Delores collects them all day long. She eavesdrops on the conversations of older people wherever she goes; Delores walks her dog, Dot, and writes down all the wonderful new words she hears. She puts all her new words into her attaché case, but that attaché case is suddenly stolen from her by a passing pelican. Delores needs help getting her attaché back, but when she tries to use her new words to get help, no one understands her. She doesn’t know the meanings of her new words. She needs one special thing to make all those words useful.

Author Jessica Lee Hutchings has written a charming rhyming picture book that will introduce youngsters to many new words and their meanings. The bright and witty illustrations by Hazel Quintanilla are a perfect addition to the story. This book is ideal for parents of little ones who’d like to know how they can grow their vocabularies and learn to use new words on their own.
