The views of this book are mine and all mine. I won this book on a giveaway don't ask on which blog because I couldn't tell you I visit so many blogs. Upon receiving the book needless to say I wasn't inspired by the cover and didn't open it. But we must not judge a book by its cover as I learned this week when I did finally opened the book. I was pleasantly surprised to see what a lovely book this was. It is a very cute book and your child will learn 13 words in a short period of time. Some of the words they may be familiar with, but then others may be new words to them. Snicket takes the 13 words and intermingles them together in a cute and creative way to form the story. The 13 words are put into context in the story so that you child will get a better idea of what the word means. I give this book 2 thumbs up because I only have 2 thumbs.

"Literature adds to reality, it does not simply describe it. It enriches the necessary competencies that daily life requires and provides; and in this respect, it irrigates the deserts that our lives have already become." -C.S. Lewis
