Many of us might use the spell check or thesaurus functions on our computers instead of cracking open a print version of dictionary, but those tools are to be credited to Mr. Noah Webster.
He is often referred to as, ” the Father of American Scholarship and Education.” Over five generations of children across the United States learned spell and read using his Blue-Backed Speller books.
Celebrate Noah’s birthday on October 16th by taking a moment to open a print dictionary and add a new word to your vocabulary.
We also have a large selection of student dictionaries and dictionary workbooks for parent and teacher use.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Dictionary!
