How Thesaurus Got Its Name


Franklin loved language. He loved expressing himself elegantly in new, exciting ways. Every morning, Franklin leaped from his four-post bed and scurried into his father’s study, where mountains of books lined ancient shelves. And every morning, Franklin cracked open the dusty cover of his favorite volume, titled simply: Words.

I think this is a great exercise for you. I love the word 'scurried' and your description of the study and cracking open a dusty cover. You love words, too. :)

I want the rest of the story!

(Janae just asked me how the cover is dusty if Franklin reads the book every day. No idea!)

I like this idea. I was worried at first that you were going to give up the blog. Our family has enjoyed it so much (my kids are always running off to be artists after they look at your work...and then requesting that I put it on the computer so Uncle Sam can see it...one day.) I like Janae's question. Sounds like the beginning of a story... :)

Thanks for the compliment, Cara!
