Point to the easy words - don't skip the hard ones

Easy words are sight words. Once children have got a mental snapshot, they are better equipped to identify a word later on in their reading.

What our customers say

  • We just got our flip book and my students (1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders) love it! We have already used some pretty impressive words and are excited to learn more. It is also very easy for me to integrate into our day.

  • My granddaughter is loving hers. Yesterday she told her mom, "Let's have DEVOUR today" and flipped through and found that word. She will be 5 at the end of the month.

Backed by research

Humans are storytelling creatures. It's how we make sense of the world. Children naturally tell stories, but when words fail them, they become stuck, often frustrated.

Traditional dictionaries don't help, either. Finding and comprehending the right information can be tricky. Applying that information is harder still. Plus, they're boring!

We wanted to create a dictionary that was both easy to navigate and inspiring. One that was based on how language is actually used, without the confusing symbols. A high ratio of hilarious illustrations to words is the icing on the cake, and makes the Storyteller's Illustrated Dictionary a breeze for even the most reluctant learners.
