Description Description

Colossal Words for Kids is a book of 60 hilariously illustrated rhymes to boost vocabulary, reading skills and spelling.

Each poem in this fun and funky book teaches a specific important word, its meaning and spelling, in an innovative and accesible way that kids will love.

Using rhythm and wordplay, the poems help build a colossal vocabulary, thinking skills and literacy. But most of all, this book delights young readers with the fun and silliness of the English language.

Building a colossal vocabulary has never felt so natural, or so much fun! Each word in this collection is defined in a simple rhyme. Using rhythm, humour and logic, each word’s meaning is made clear and accessible. Kids will want to try them out straight away: it’s a ready-to-use collection!    

From Ambiguous to Zealous, the words in this book are for 7–12-year olds. It may seem inconceivable for one book to encompass such a wide age span! But in fact, inconceivable (and all the words in this book) were selected from vocabulary lists intended for older children, so that younger children can challenge themselves and discover a wealth of great new words!
