Big Words Small Stories: The Missing Donut Book Review


Big Words Small Stories: The Missing Donut

Children’s Fiction, Picture Book

Publication Date: September 4, 2018


Five short stories about a boy named Cris and his cat named Crat come together. Each story also features the Sprinkle Fairy and her helpers the Sprinklers who insert BIG WORDS into the story - words like purloined and bamboozled. Each of the big words is then used in the last story.

To be honest, I was a little worried I wouldn’t like this book when I first read about the Sprinkle Fairy and her Sprinklers, but the easy to read stories are humorous, the illustrations are fun, and I know many kids who would love reading this book and learning some of these “big words.” Big Words Small Stories: The Missing Donut is a cleaver approach to developing a larger vocabulary for children.
