This book is a goldmine if you are trying to teach vocabularyto middle schoolers. I tried the first set of ten words with my students and when we were finished they asked, "When are we going to do more?" I purchased the matching blackline masters from the company and turned them into "mini-posters" which are hung around my room. Many students (even the ones I don't teach!) enter my room and ask, "When are you going to put up more? We know all of these!" Keep in mind that I had at least 50 on the wall when this was asked! But the true kicker is when a student viewed "The hamper scampered to the finish line" and said, "Wow, He's throwing out all his clothes!" A must-have for many laughs during learning!

i have personally talked with other teachers who conducted research on the vocabulary cartoon books and the claims made by the authors are completely as represented. Memory aids of both visual and rhyming association mnemonics provide an entertaining and rapid way to learn and retain new words. If there is a better way to build vocabulary I have never found it in my eighteen years of teaching english. Samantha Ann Vogt

The concept is wonderful; however, I wish there had been information on the grade level this book was desinged for. I can use some of the cartoons, but most are more suitable for gifted and talented, upper elementary, and middle school students.

I have been reading this book to our 9 & 6 year old and they love it. These are "big" words but the kids have fun with them because they enjoy the pictures and easy to understand definitions. The best part is they are retaining the meaning of the words. I highly recommend this book.

This is a great vocabulary supplement for our home school, for several age groups. The kids hardly notice they are learning yet retain all the words, and they enjoy it, too.

The so-called "elementary" edition of Vocabulary Cartoons is not elementary enough. "Ductile", "succor", and "capacious" are words whose meanings are more advanced than I was hoping for. I was also disappointed in the structure. I assumed from the title and from the cover information that words would be introduced through comic strip stories. Instead, the book is just a series of word-picture associations with no real story or funny taglines. It's probably a good book for junior high or high school students, but is above the elementary level.

love this book. i got it for my son who have autism,adhd, and learn disability. this book is working really well with him. it helps him to remember the words because it has a cartoon example with the word. what i like is that it not only show you the word,but it also show you how it sounds when spoken and it gives the picture, then it also gives you a couple of sentence and the part of speech. all around this is an great book for the visual learner...will buy more

This was a fun and easy book to use with language arts to increase or practice vocabulary words. The way my daughter and I used it was to read 5 new words a day. Since the sections are broken into 10 words she would do a section every two days. On the second day she would verbally answer the review questions at the end of the lesson. After 5 lessons I had her go back and do the review questions again, this time in pencil on the copied pages I made. Thus reviewing the vocabulary a second time.

I would highly recommend this easy to understand and humorous vocabulary enrichment curriculum for elementary and middle school students.
