    Looking for a fun way to increase your child's vocabulary? 180 reproducible cartoons are contained in this book, and each highlights a new word to learn for the day. It's like reading the comics, but a bit more educational. Verbs, nouns, and adjectives are all included, and the vocabulary words are all in common use. For each of the cartoons, one of the characters is saying something humorous within the context of what is going on in the picture. The vocabulary word is bolded within the cartoon, and the part of speech and definition of the word is given to the side. Two cartoons are displayed on every page of the book, and everything is in black and white. While black and white cartoons could be seen as a drawback (who doesn't love the colorful Sunday comics the best?), children could have fun and get more use out of the book by coloring the comics themselves. The vocabulary words are geared towards 4th-6th graders, but could be enjoyable for younger or older students depending on their vocabulary level. 94 pgs, pb. ~ Rachel

    This inexpensive flashcard set is the perfect tool for young students to learn and quiz themselves on basic Spanish vocabulary. This set of 86 cards introduces everyday words—colors, numbers, food, clothing, animals, people, and household objects. One side of the card lists the Spanish word in large type; the reverse side provides a cartoon illustration depicting the vocabulary word, with the Spanish word repeating underneath and the English translation appearing in small type in the upper right hand corner. A parents' card suggests activities for using the flashcards. ~ Lisa

    As you might have already guessed from the evocative title, this is a vocabulary book centered on Greek and Latin root words. There are 36 units that can be used one per week or in concentration. It's a fun, interactive type of book and a good precursor to the more studious Vocabulary from Classical Roots series. Master word lists, along with their roots, are provided up front as a handy reference and summary. It includes several ideas for activities for each study. Every unit contains three reproducible pages for the student, introducing ten vocabulary words and tracing their definitions back to a common meaning. The pages are graphically stimulating and motivating to complete, rather than a dry, fill-in-the-blank presentation. I especially like the little symbol on the upper right-hand corner of each student page which gives a visual reminder of the root from which all these words spring. As an example, the first root studied is the Latin "foli," meaning "leaf." After students match the definitions to words printed on an assortment of leaf shapes, they make up sentences for each and, optionally, with string, tape, and a twig, make a foli mobile. The second student page for this unit is entitled "Comic Re-Leaf." It has a circle of cartoon visuals depicting the meaning of each vocabulary word with little pictures, characters, and word bubbles. In the center are the ten vocabulary words to write on each. For reinforcement, students then turn their paper over and write the definitions for the ten words from memory. The last page "Turn Over a New Leaf" presents news headlines incorporating the vocabulary words. Students have to write the first sentence of each news story, defining the vocabulary words. For example, the first sentence of a story for the headline "Unicorn Uncovers Unusual Unifoliate Under Uncle's Umbrella" might read, "Yesterday, a young unicorn playing in the park moved the umbrella of a family member only to find a rare species of plant having only one leaf." After this, the student is told to choose one of the headlines and illustrate it. This approach to learning vocabulary has something to offer for all learning styles, including the hands-on learner.

    This book is humorous, and you will probably find yourself laughing out loud at some of the cartoons used to explain the concepts and vocabulary of chemistry. By the same authors as Cartoon Guide to Physics, Larry Gonick and Craig Criddle try to explain some difficult topics and terminology using mnemonics such as silly cartoons, goofy phrases, and wacky conversations. This 250-page book would be a great reference for your visual learners who need something a little extra to go with their chemistry curriculum. It is important to remember that this book doesn't come from a Biblical worldview. Although it doesn't get into theologies, it does include a little bit of crudeness that might not be appreciated by all. This quirky take on chemistry will change your student's outlook on the subject. ~ Donna

    Clever, colorful wipe-off cards will make tricky words less of a chore to learn. Each card has 3 words at the bottom and 3 spaces to write at the top. A guide tells kids how to use the cards. Look at the word first, read it carefully. Say the word and try to remember how to spell it. Cover the word and write it in the box at the top of the card. Check your answer by revealing the word. More tips include learning words in groups with similar letter combinations. Think of an expression using the word to help you remember it. Picture the word in your head or break the word into smaller bits. Cards are color coded by spelling rules so you could cover one color per week. Examples of the words on the cards are: happiness, receive, Wednesday, knuckle, sphere, and lightning. You get 50 cards (300 words) and a wipe-off marker. ~ Sara
