The Unofficial Harry Potter Vocabulary Builder: Learn the 3,000 Hardest Words from All Seven Books and Enjoy the Series More Reviews
Love this dictionary. I bought a Kindle version for myself and a paperback version for my nieces. It will help all of us to understand the Harry Potter series better. I hope it will improve my nieces vocabulary. One niece is ten and on book five and the other niece is eight and finished book one. I hope the youngest will benefit the most from this book.
Just the fact that as my 4th grade daughter reads the HP books and stumbles across a word she can pull this book out and look it up is great! Yes, she could go grab her dictionary that does the same thing, but for her there is just something about grabbing the HP dictionary instead. She actually looks up the word and it is small enough to have with her at all times while reading the series. She has enjoyed it...and hey if it gets her to use it, I'm all for it. At first I was disappointed because the made up words from HP were not in there (I understand now why they aren't) and I didn't think my daughter would use it because it was more like a dictionary that anything else. I was pleasantly surprised that she did love it. I give it two thumbs up. I wouldn't however recommend it for older students, I just don't think it would have the same affect on them as it would a 3rd-5th grader.
Got the sample to check it out and was impressed. Planned to use it for a lit study. I needed to be able to search this book. You can search the sample but not the full book. Now i have to go page by page to find the words for each book in the series. Beyond ticked! Why have a feature in the sample but not in the full verison!!!
Good dictionary with Harry Potter terms thrown in, making the book very appealing to a child who is a HP fan. I find my 9 year old granddaughter actually reading like a nove.
This is an excellent dictionary of words that are featured in the Harry Potter Novels. If you collect all the books having to do with Harry Potter, you will need this one.
The effort to publish this book will reward readers as they navigate through Harry Potter novels. Useful to understand R.K. Rowling's choice of words such as English words, slang and mystical terminology. Graphics also help visualize many words. This book does not work magic but if you want to improve you vocabulary you still need to make the effort.
Didn't realize there were so many great words in these books! We should all study up! This book is laid out very well. Thank you!
great for vocab exercises!
