I got this book in my mailbox the other day. It seems to be a new way to approach vocabulary lessons. It uses the popular Twilight book to help young people learn vocabulary.
When I first saw the book, I was perplexed. What did Twilight have to do with vocabulary? Then I peeked inside and saw that Author Brian Leaf uses passages from Twilight to quiz students and show them what the words in Twilight mean. There are more than the words vampire and blood in that book for sure; words students need to know.
The Twilight series has encouraged many young people to read more and it seems Leaf has found a way to help them learn even more while doing it.
