A blog for kids (and their parents) who love books, words, and dreaming big...
I'm so glad you stopped by! Welcome.

When someone is kind, friendly, or good-natured, that person is also being amiable [ey-mee-uh-buhl].  (Other good synonyms include affable, genial, and cordial.)  It is a trait that I admire in others and one that I aspire towards, though I don't always succeed. 

She greeted the new student with an amiable smile.

While his mother pushed him along in the shopping cart,
the amiable young boy waved at everyone he passed.

I closed my eyes and lifted my face towards the sun,
relishing the amiable spring day.

How would you use the word amiable?
