As a former American History teacher, I thought I knew quite a bit. But, this weeks book taught me a few things. In a search for a nonfiction mentor text, I found NOAH WEBSTERS’ FIGHTING WORDS by Tracy Nelson Maurer and illustrated by Mircea Catusanu.
This little gem had me hooked from the first sentence.
“Words! Numbers! They tickled young Noah.”
Pick up this nonfiction biography of Noah Webster, you’ll be surprised at what you will learn about the man who created the first American dictionary.
Here is my Master Study.
