My Epic Life Word Book
Curated from word lists for kids aged four to eight, My Epic Life Word Book presents a highly entertaining method for introducing kindergartners to over 1000 relevant words. The quirky story-like illustrations on every page reinforce the words' meanings, and the simple definitions are tailored to a child's unique point of view. My Epic Life Word Book is an excellent resource for building your child's vocabulary, with high-frequency words, the all-important social-emotional words, uncommon (epic) words, and more. My Epic Life Word Book covers many child-friendly topics, like the days of the week, math, hygiene, friendship, and more. And for an extra burst of fun, your child will want to find Bogart, a mischievous larva who strongly resembles a bookworm, hidden in multiple volumes through this book. Created with the help of teachers, literacy experts, and award-winning Hollywood artists, My Epic Life Word Book is a large, comprehensive 235-page volume. A 2019 National Parenting Product Award Winner and a 2019 Tillywig Award winner.
Nearly all of the words and images are excellent for young readers. However, some families may find occasional illustrations troubling, such as a Frankensteinian scene, zodiac calendar, yoga pose, or cat biting an electrical cable. Thus, parents may want to preview the book before reading it with their child, in particular, pages 58-59, 67, 109, 112-113, 156-157, and 181.

We are a huge reading family and my son is obsessed with large words and definitions, this book made learning more words for his vocabulary fun and he can use them correctly in a sentence! It’s permanently on his bookshelf now!
We used My Epic Life Word Book a few times a week throughout the whole school year for my 5-year old's Kindergarten year. It was a big hit, and helped us explain many words and concepts.
Honestly when we opened this book, I had a moment of regret on purchasing it. It is beautifully illustrated, but I thought the definitions to be too sparse. Boy was I wrong! my daughter is 4.5 and LOVES sitting together and reading the definitions and comparing them to and describing the pictures, huge win, so glad we have it!
This book is so fun, has great illustrations! It is a fun book to pull out and just read a few pages at a time!
This book has so many words that could be really helpful for expanding vocabulary. I put it in the book shelf when we finished it so they can continue to practice words they don’t know. They loved reading it because of all the fun colorful pictures.
