From A for Adventure and N for Nature to T for Tractor and Twins, this first lexicon assembles important topics and terms that fascinate children of kindergarten and preschool age. What does an astronaut do? Where does the kangaroo live? How does a rainbow form? Brief, easy-to-understand factual texts answer these and many other questions children have. Again and again, the book draws connections to children’s everyday lives to help explain facts more clearly. For example, the term “illness” is explained with the story of Philipp who has to stay home with the chickenpox. An abstract term like envy is discussed via a fight about toys between Lena and Nina. Lexicon learning games promote interactive knowledge acquisition and playfully consolidate what children have learned. The charming, age-appropriate illustrations arouse curiosity and inspire conversations.
