    Recommend for classroom mentor text.

    This book is about a boy who eats a thesaurus and is now using multiple examples of words in each sentence as if he were reciting all of the synonyms for each word. It could be use in an elementary classroom to introduce a thesaurus and synonyms. Cute and fun way to teach the concept!

    Great for teachers, too!

    As a teacher, I found Boris to be an excellent way to teach the California Standard for synonyms through literature. The students were captivated by the language and the evolving story line. The illustrations are colorful and full of expressive characters. This book is great way to introduce synonyms and the publisher provides supplemental worksheets at their website for discussion and independent practice. This book (a soon to be classic) is a must have for any primary teacher's classroom library. It is also a fun way to encourage vocabulary development for non or limited English speaking students.
