This book is great to build vocabulary for those little ones that need extra words in their filing cabinets. I loved every bit of it. The kids got a kick out of it.

I discovered this book when my second grader, an advanced reader, came home with this book on loan from her teacher. Immediately after returning the book, I went to Barnes & Noble to purchase our own copy. This book is an inventive, interesting way to introduce new vocabulary words. Also, it makes learning new vocabulary words fun. My 6th grader even enjoyed reading it with us one night. This book has become a staple of our reading library. It has longetivity in that we can, and will, re-read this book many, many times.

A few years ago this area was under siege by a sniper and all Halloween activities were suspended. To make up for that one of our very creative teachers came up with a better idea based on the book Miss Alaineus. Now every year the 3rd grade teachers get together and come up with a series of words (based on what we are writing about--mystery, fables, scary stories) that the children then turn into costumes. An example would be Discover--the costume being a cover with discs all over it. The students love it and have a great time brainstorming ideas for their costumes. One teacher wore a pair of dice--thus paradise! Enjoy

We love to find words with with double meanings (homonyms). This book is full of them. A teacher gives a labor intensive assignment to a sick student and the fun begins. Drudgery turns into unexpected embarrassment with a twist of surprise at the end. Highly recommend this book!
