Category Description for Vocabulary Cartoons:

Take a visual-mnemonic approach to learning and retaining vocabulary words. Studies have shown that a more bizarre or unusual "picture" or mnemonic increases retention while more common ones do not. So, the "vocabutoons" presented here are slightly absurd (though not ridiculous) and definitely memorable. In most editions, each word is featured on its own digest-sized spread. Underneath each cartoon is a witty mnemonic linking word (Wail sounds like tail) and a caption including the main word: “Cats wail when you rock on their tail” (you can imagine that cartoon!). Then, the specific vocabulary word is used in two or more sentences, in meaningful context, varying the usage when applicable (verb tenses, etc.). To test recall, a review comes after every tenth word (as matching or fill-in-the-blank exercises, etc.). Vocabulary Cartoons teaches 218 words and is aimed as an introduction to the series. Most of these words are repeated in the Word of the Day (173 out of 180), which utilizes a full-sized format with 2-4 words on each page, adding antonyms and synonyms to expand vocabulary. This volume is perfect for an older student wanting a quick introduction or review. Although you’ll most likely want to use one volume or the other, these two do use different sentences in the reviews.

If you like this approach, the 2013 revised and updated Vocabulary Cartoons I and Vocabulary Cartoons II each includes 290 additional SAT® words.

This looks like it gives a thorough explanation of the words and has a picture that my children will hopefully connect with to aid retention.

I want my girls to have a good vocabulary. We are stepping away from our all-inclusive reading curriculum this year, so I needed to add in vocabulary. This looked like a fun way to go about it.

I have a visual learner who needs a "right brain friendly" vocabulary method. I think he will love this.
Kristen D on May 30, 2016
My kids are visual learners. It is hard for them to retain a list of words. I thought this would be fun for the whole family to add to their vocabulary.

My entire first order should be on its way back to your company because my apt numb was left off the shipping address. Therefore I am reordering and will wait for my card to be reimbursed for that first order. Thanks.

fun way to learn vocabulary for reluctant learners.
Humza on Feb 4, 2021
Is there a word list somewhere so I can just see if my kid knows most of these words? I'd hate to buy it only to find out he knows like 70-80% of the words already. Thank you!
A shopper on Jul 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The back of the book does contain an index of all the words.. Here is some examples of words in the book that probably aren’t super common for kids to already know: adage, belittle, bilk, culprit, derelict, dovetail, encumber, facade, genteel, hospitable, inert, jocular, lull, magnate, neophyte, outfox, parapet, qualm, rakish, salient, tirade, utter, vex, zeal.

There are plenty of other more everyday words that are in the book as well but this was just an example to show that they do help extent our children’s vocabulary and comprehension.
Are answers included?
Amy on Mar 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: There are no questions in this book. If you look at the pictures included in this description that is exactly how every word looks like. After every 10 words there is a matching quiz and the answers to those are included. I hope this helps.
