Thesaurus Rex

Thesaurus Rex by Laya Steinbrg is exactly what you think: synonyms + a dinosaur. It may sound odd, but it is a house favorite. So much so that I actually remember trying to hide it from my daughter after the 1000th reading. Thesaurus Rex's day is filled with fun and mischief--you all know what I am talking about--like most of our houses. The best part of this book is that everything Thesaurus Rex does in a day is described with four different words that have the same meaning. Where else is your child going to be exposed to the word 'rollick'? It's catchy, includes rhyme, and plays with language.

*Describe an action from your own day with different words that mean the same thing.
*Make text-to-self connections.
