Ladybug Nominee Profile

Michael loves interesting words (hard words like ELASTIC, little words like VAST, and big words like SMITHEREENS) and is always on the lookout for words to collect. Then one day, he picks up a new word. A bad word. An inappropriate word. At least, that’s what his friend says. But Michael kind of likes the word. He thinks he might try it out.
At school.
Bad idea.
In The Very Inappropriate Word Jim Tobin and Dave Coverly (whom you probably know from Speedbump)  have created a celebration of words in the tale of a boy who collects them.  Kirkus Review has a great article about this book and how it handles "inappropriate" words.After reading this story you may be inpsired to get out your dictionary and find some new words of your own. Check out the trailer!

This is one of the ten titles nominated for the 2014 Ladybug Picture Book Award.
