About My Epic Life Word Book
Created with the support of Susan Neuman (Professor of Early Childhood and Literacy Education, NYU), MY EPIC LIFE WORD BOOK is not your average dictionary. It is a dictionary, but it’s also a handbook for any child who wants to live a truly epic life. Join our cast of word-hungry animals as they guide kids through everything they need to know to turn home, school, and life into a learning adventure. Designed to be uproariously fun and endlessly surprising, each page bursts with Hollywood illustration.
MY EPIC LIFE WORD BOOK is filled with words curated from relevant, global curriculum lists for kids. Furthermore, it’s got extra challenging vocabulary added to the mix. It gives children the words they need to express themselves in every part of life, from emotions to math, food to philosophy, making a big mucky mess to cleaning up, as well as a whole chapter on the future of technology. There will be joy and tears. There will be a dog brushing his teeth on a hoverboard. Welcome to MY EPIC LIFE DICTIONARY.

My Epic Life Word Book is really great! I don’t know about you, but when I was in school, our vocabulary didn’t include words like concept artist, low-tops, stealth mode, or zip-wire. Now, a lot of the books included in this word book are everyday words, but the way they’re used or illustrated in this book make them so much easier to understand. Rather than just defining a word, the book uses words and illustrations that speed up and improve learning.
This is a book that is definitely worth checking out!
