Noah Webster Father of the Dictionary - A Book Review

It is no secret that I love books and if I had to pick a favorite from my own personal library I would be hard pressed indeed.  However, I can tell you that one of my most favorite books and a recommended must have for everyone is my 1828 Noah Webster Dictionary.  There is something special about it.  I still remember the day I got it and I have referred to it many times throughout the years.

I recently had the opportunity to read for review Noah Webster - Father of the Dictionary by Isabel Proudfit.  I was so excited and I knew it would be a valuable asset to our homeschool library.  The book is written for mid-elementary age children, but I also think older students would enjoy it as well.  It goes beyond just telling the story of Noah Webster writing the dictionary.  It also tells of his childhood, his struggles and successes.

If you are wanting to learn more about the man who wrote the Noah Webster Dictionary, or maybe you are doing a unit study, or you need a great resource to go along with your History curriculum, this book would be for you!
