We have the classics, but we’re also developing a library of the new books worth owning. That includes the Jamie Lee Curtis’ series, one of the rare sets of celebrity-written titles that are worth the money. Teamed up with Laura Cornell, a mom and illustrator who’s drawn the colorful and funky kids in each of Curtis’ books, her latest is Big Words for Little People, a rhyming tale of consideration, patience, respect and patience. They’re big words, yes, but they’re some of the most important we can teach our kids, and Curtis and Cornell manage to impart their wisdom with gentle humor that tickles little funny bones.
Thanks to the folks at HarperCollins, Inside Out has a copy of Big Words up for grabs in our newest giveaway. Want to get in on the fun? How about a little dialogue? In comments, tell us the big word surprises to come out of your children’s mouths (or those of neices, nephews, whoever the kid in your life may be).
