The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus by Jen Bryant and Melissa Sweet - - ESSENTIAL

Bryant, Jen and Sweet, Melissa The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus, 42 pgs. Eerdmans Books for Young Readers, 2014. $17.50. PICTURE BOOK Content: G.  Peter Roget was a list maker.  His family moved often and he had a hard time making friends, but he loved to read and especially loved making lists.  This is the story of the wordsmith whose collection of lists became Roget’s Thesaurus.  The collages illustrate it perfectly, inviting the reader to spend more time with this book than just reading through it once.  Although his life story is brief, this picture book biography gets a high recommendation from this reader.
