The story is presented in a sentence or two per spread, with one word in bold in the text on the left side. On the right side, the bold word appears again, accompanied by a boxed illustration intended to further highlight and define the term. Textured, muted watercolor images are simple, presenting characters and scenes in a manner set to appeal to younger audiences.
