As a former journalist and a current author, words have always been very important to me. They allow me to express ideas, feelings and explain situations. It is also dear to me that I pass on the importance of words to my children.
While they both might be too young for the Roots Booster, I know they will benefit from it as they grow older and their vocabulary expands. My daughter took a look at this learning book, and while she did not understand it, she expressed interest in spending more time with it. After all, her vocabulary has not yet reached the level of "euphemism" or "autodidact." But, I know this book will help her on her journey.
I love that answers to the quizzes are provided in the back of the book, because (and it kills my pride to say this), there were some words with which I was not familiar. I had to look in the back at the answers. I am hoping that will encourage my daughter - not even Mama knows all these words.
This book is better equipped to aid students in middle school and high school, especially when they learn about breaking words down to their roots, which is what this learning tool is really all about. I do recommend this.
