School Library Journal,
November 2013

“Children are often asked to think of synonyms when writing. For many reasons, that can be a challenge for some learners. This introductory set is a great resource for learning about word choice. Sophisticated vocabulary is used. For example, synonyms for the word ‘big’ are not just limited to ‘large’ and ‘huge,’ but also include words such as ‘vast’ and ‘massive.’ In order to focus the titles, a theme connects all the synonyms within each. For example, Hot is about hot things at the beach. The clear layout, simple texts, and large photographs promote and encourage independent reading. Extra materials include a fantastic visual glossary and a guide for parents and teachers on how to use the volumes with children. A lot can be done with this simple series. ”—Series Made Simple

“Books in this series follow the same clear layout that begins with basic suggestions for using it with the students. The synonyms chosen are a little more sophisticated than one might normally find for this age group; all examples use crisp photographs to illustrate the synonyms. To increase understanding, each book is centered on a theme. For instance, in The Many Kinds of Big, all the examples are marine animals and the ocean. These books will be a welcome addition to word choice lessons and the photos are so inviting that readers will choose the books for choice reading as well. Recommended. ”—Brook Berg
