Fear not! The Storyteller's Word a Day is designed to cover September to May. We wanted to be habit-forming, so we thought dividing the 180 illustrated words into the 9 months of the academic school year would work well for that. It doesn't really matter where in the year you start the book, the months included are there as a guide to help, with some seasonal words included in the mix.
The most important point is that this book is designed to help you form a word learning habit with your child and for this to happen little and often. Spaced repetition is proven to be a successful tool which we encourage. This means re-visiting the words that children have learnt in the book after a period of time to help ensure they stick.
