Words are SUPERB, but they can often confuse us. Just what, exactly, is it to LOOM, BAWL, or be LUMINOUS? With these big words come colorful pictures, which show you how the word meets its meaning in these bright and colorful mixtures.While learning new words is usually a bore, learning with Wild Wacky Words makes sure it isn’t a chore. So turn a page and find something new—all this book needs is an imagination and you! By introducing how words can be combined with colors and images in order to highlight their meanings, words themselves become beautiful landscapes that readers will want to explore.

  • I would have loved this book as a kid! I loved words and would read my children’s dictionary because it satisfied me more than the books available for my grade level. I didn’t understand why, if I could read the words, I couldn’t learn more words to increase my vocabulary and reading level. If I didn’t understand a word, I’d look it up without hesitation. Many days, I’d copy words out of the dictionary to get it into my brain. They were a special interest. 🥲
  • This book is a bit like that. I learned some words I didn’t know the meanings of, despite hearing or seeing several of them in my life up to this point.
  • Some of the rhymes don’t add up, but the melody is quickly recovered with the next one. The illustrations are colorful and pleasing to the eye.
