Because of my superior location near the New Book shelves, I get first crack at the new items that come in, including the chapter books, the picture books, even nonfiction and biographies. Did you know that a biography is a book about a real person? Today I snuck a new biography about Peter Roget, the person who made Roget’s Thesaurus. Guess what? A thesaurus is not a dinosaur. It’s a list of words, and the ones that mean the same thing are all grouped together. Peter Roget always made lists of things, from when he was a very little boy, and one day those lists became his first thesaurus.You can even browse a version of Roget’s Thesaurus online.
The right word: Roget and his thesaurus by Jen Bryant, author ; Melissa Sweet, illustrator
Find other fascinating stories about real people in the J Biography section at the back of the Children’s Department, or ask a Children's Librarian.
