For Better and for Verse: An Omnium-Gatherum of Words at Play
This new book from Susan Jones is an engaging, amusing, entertaining, and educational
collection of “vocabulary verse.”
Q. What is vocabulary verse?
A. It is verse with a purpose,
and that purpose is to have fun with words and language.
Its purpose is to present words in the context of light verse –
to let the verses highlight and celebrate, and sometimes even define the words.
Its purpose is to engage, amuse, entertain and educate.
Each word is accompanied by pronunciation, definition, comments on its origin,
relevant uses of the word in context from quotations and literature.
Best of all is an original verse lovingly and humorously created by author
Susan Jones (aka Words’Worth).
