When children utter their first words, they begin to color their world with their ideas. The words they use are the crayons that draw the pictures of expression. The more words a child possess, the more they increase the colors in their communication box. Latin roots came into English from several directions and are the primary colors that combine in many ways to enrich vocabulary. This book leads young children to the discovery of Latin roots through rhymes, fun pictures, and games. When these simple components are learned, word development loses some of its mystery. The knowledge of these roots will serve children throughout their lives as they encounter new words and will help them understand the connective nature of language.
