Shona, Word Detective
Publisher: Barrington Stoke
Shona loves words. She even writes down new and unusual words that she comes across in a special notebook. So she’s shocked when she learns that many languages are dying out.
Then her teacher challenges the class to create a 'language-nest’, researching the truth behind people’s and places names, and thinking about all the languages they know between them. And soon they are all becoming word detectives.
A delightful celebration of lexicography, this is a book that will surely inspire all children to find the fun in words and language. Dyslexia-friendly layout, font and paper ensure an accessible read.
