Hi!  There is a discussion about children's books with fun/rare vocabulary words on the one of the national email discussion lists for children's librarians.  I thought all of you would like to the following great list of books when working on vocabulary development during home visits or storytime.  This list was created by and shared with permission from Heather McNeil, RFHF trainer and participant, and children's librarian at Deschutes Public Library.
