Book Drops: "The Word Snoop" by Ursula Dubosarsky (rated 4 stars)

by Ursula Dubosarsky

It’s been a while since I’ve actually written anything about the books I’ve been here is one that I thoroughly enjoyed! “The Word Snoop” by Ursula Dubosarsky takes the reader on a fun, sleuthing journey through the English language and a lot of it’s idiosyncracies.
I learned what pangrams were! A pangram is a sentence using every letter of the alphabet! There were little codes to decipher at the end of each chapter and it also had some lovely illustrations. I also read about acronyms, palidromes and text messages. It was such a fun book and great for anyone who is interested in the English language.
