John explains, "Practically every third grader is very happy to receive and have their own dictionary. Our teams explain what a dictionary is, why people use dictionaries and the key feathers of a dictionary. We also explain that some words have multiple definitions. We encourage each student to write their name on the inside of the first page of the dictionary in the space provide within our club label. Some say that this is the first dictionary that their family has ever possessed. In this situation, their excitement is beyond describing because it is so heartfelt."
