My children have been introduced to a whole new world of vocabulary. It makes me smile when I hear them using words that they have learned. Now I will admit that we did not look up every word we did not understand. When the children questioned the meaning of a word and I also did not understand it we would search for its meaning.

One word of warning. Read the Epilogue before sharing it with your children and decide if it is something you want to share with him. You could read it ahead of time and give them the main idea of how he dies. I felt it was to graphic for my 4 and 8 year old.
