Description

Burdensome, Katzenjammer, Mystify, Wondrous, and Zany - these are five of the twenty-six words, one for each letter of the alphabet, that appear in ""Weighty Words, Too"". As with the earlier ""Weighty Word Book"", the stories, often fanciful, help young readers build their vocabularies. 'Hibernate' tells the tale of Nathaniel, a very energetic Canadian bear, who plays in the snow with the other bears. Soon all the bears tire and want to sleep, with the exception of Nate. 'He's hyper,' one grizzly bear observes. 'If it's winter sleep you want,' advises Nathaniel, 'then I suggest you do the opposite from me, hyper Nate'. So, whenever animals sleep through the winter, think of 'hyper Nate', and you will remember the word Hibernate.
