Smell the Daisies

(3) 1-3 Big Words Small Stories series. Illustrated by T. L. McBeth. Six everyday-type vignettes feature a kid and pet who learn "big words" (including flabbergasted and irked) with help from the Sprinkle Fairy. It's pretty obvious that the spot-illustrated stories are written around the vocabulary words, but prompts from the texts will have kids trying out the new words, which are, yes, big as well as funny-sounding enough to keep their attention. Review covers these Big Words Small Stories titles: Smell the Daisies and Traveling Dustball.
