However, I was disappointed that there are only 12 words showcased in this book. And even those are only described very briefly in one paragraph for each word. Each entry informs the reader about the pronunciation, origin, English meaning, and original meaning, and then has a small paragraph with the story of how the word came to be included in English and how its meaning changed. It’s good, but left me wanting more.
The illustrations are bright and colorful with interesting designs. The art takes up the entire page, and uses bold lines. The word itself is cleverly incorporated into the art, and I really liked that!
I only wish this book was longer, and featured more words!
