Picture Book on Noah Webster


I found this book on goodreads.com and got it at the library. We had it as a bedtime story for my littles tonight. I learned so many things about Noah Webster from reading it. Did you know that he went to Yale when he was 15? Did you know that when he finished college at Yale and came home, the colonists were fighting the Revolutionary War? You can learn those facts, plus the power he wielded to unite the United States of America by creating the first American dictionary, which took him 17 years to write. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. It’s a little too cartoony for me but my three youngest and I had enjoyed the story and learned a lot.
