Happy Dictionary Day!

Today is Dictionary Day, and also the anniversary of the birth (1758) of Noah Webster, the man for whom Webster's Dictionary is named.

Believe it or not, we have a children's picture book biography of Noah Webster! It's titled Noah Webster and His Words, and was written by Jeri Chase Ferris [J B WEB].

Writer Jeri Ferris has developed lesson plans for teachers to use with the book, and she also has a short trailer on her website.

It's great that writers are bringing history alive for kids! When I was growing up, there were few picture books, let alone nonfiction picture books for children!
