A blog for kids (and their parents) who love books, words, and dreaming big...

The word for this week is zephyr [zef-er], a noun meaning "a gentle, mild breeze".  I like the way this word sounds -- and also the way it looks.  (Is that strange?)  I think of it as a "springy" word and since we've been having some spring weather recently (finally), I thought it would be a good word to share.

Here are a few example sentences:

A spring zephyr blew through the meadow, 
rippling the tall grasses in gentle waves.

Digging in the garden, I appreciated the balance 
between the warmth of the sun on my head 
and the hint of a zephyr that cooled me.

How would you use the word zephyr?  Are there any words that you like because of their sound or look?  I'd love to hear about them!
