I LOVE this book. It is a collection of jokes and riddles usually with a vocabulary word as the "punchline". My dd is in love with this book.

PROS-- 100 new words in a very fun/high interest format, jokes help the meaning *stick*, formatted like a series of cards (cut pages in half horizontally, blank cards to make up your own jokes, good selection of words for this age group (rambunctious, nostalgic etc.)

CONS--this isn't a series, boy I wish it was, my dd learns the new words so easily with this book!
