Spelling Bee Entertains with “Feed Me Words”

By The E.W. Scripps Company, Special for  USDR

The Scripps National Spelling Bee is sharing its passion for words, spelling and vocabulary through its first venture into the world of children’s books with “Feed Me Words.” The book, written by Kris Hirschmann, illustrated by James K. Hindle and published by Roaring Brook Press, was developed in partnership with the Bee and includes stories, puzzles and activities that are perfect for sharing at snack time or around the dinner  table.

Through dozens of word puzzles, spelling brain teasers and vocabulary-filled stories, readers can play with language, investigate sneaky silent letters and test their understanding of homonyms, synonyms and palindromes. Lessons through stories include colorful illustrations and information sidebars with tips, tricks, trivia and interactive  exercises.
