Parents need to know that "P Is for Pterodactyl" shows kids lots of English words that are hard to spell (or pronounce) because they begin with silent letters, like pterodactyl, aisle, knight, and knot, or have silent letters in them. It also gets into words that come from languages other than English, like gnocci and tsunami, and plays with homonyms like sea and see. Every page has a fun, cartoon-like illustration and sentence below it that help kids understand the meaning and context of the words. "P Is for Pterodactyl" is a word lover's delight and an almost mandatory read-aloud. Includes a glossary at the back.
