Innovative Vocabulary Building Book TEN DOLLAR WORDS FOR KIDS Improves Language
Increasing a child's vocabulary is easy if you simply introduce them to words, says dad Kevin Kennedy, author of the new book "Ten Dollar Words for Kids."
"There are more than a million words in the English language, but we use very few," Kennedy said. He started teaching his own children a variety of words early in their lives to help them have expanded vocabularies. It was almost a game, but the result is they know more words than their peers, explained Kennedy.
Published by Halo Publishing International, "Ten Dollar Words for Kids" will empower readers with the knowledge and understanding of new words. "It's for kids to learn big and prosper," said the author.
Halo Publisher (www.halopublishing.com) Lisa Umina said "Ten Dollar Words for Kids" plants seeds for developing learning curiosity. "It inspires children to learn even more and an improved vocabulary will benefit them throughout their lives," Umina said.
Kennedy has a vision to develop "Ten Dollar Words for Kids" books tailored to a variety of medicines such as dentistry, psychiatry, pediatrics, etc., and maybe even other complex professions. "Big words are there to use, not to wonder what they mean," he said.
"A larger and more complex vocabulary at an early age is essential to setting our children up for success. 'Ten Dollar Words for Kids' books are all about building the vocabulary of a child, and maybe a little about refreshing the minds of teens and adults in a most extraordinary way."
Kennedy served in the U.S. Navy for more than 25 years, a service tradition modeled after his father and brother. The youngest child of loving and bright parents, Kennedy graduated from Upper Arlington High School, near Columbus, Ohio. He earned a bachelor's degree at Southern Illinois University at Carbondale and retired from the Navy in 2010. The author resides with his wife, Martha, in Chesapeake, Va. He is the father of four children, ages 27, 18 and twin 6-year-olds, all with better than average vocabularies.
