The Right Word!

Mrs. Shuffield read one of the new 2015-16 Bluebonnet-nominated books to Mrs. Crocker's classes the Friday before the STAAR Writing test. A picture book biography, The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus, tells the story of Peter Mark Roget, the creator of Roget's Thesaurus and how he loved finding just the right word when speaking or writing!
