Noah Webster: A Man Who Loved Words

Noah Webster was a wonderful book written by Elaine Cunningham. I enjoyed this book so much. Noah was a curious boy who loved words and his great desire for learning lead him to follow his dreams of reading and writing. Noah Webster published one of the greatest books of all times.

Noah Webster was born on October 16, 1759 in beautiful Hartford, Connecticut. His parents were Noah and Merrcy Webster. He had four siblings, Merrcy, Abram, Jersha, and Charles. He worked on a farm and had many chores. When he had free time he would read until his eyes hurt. He was homeschooled by his mother and then went to School House Hartford. He was also taught by his Pastor Perkins. When he was 17 he went to college at Yale, Connecticut's only college. When he was thirty years old, he married Rebecca Greenleaf. They had eight children and one of them died. Later on, they adopted their grandchild, Marry.

Noah wrote a well-read book called the Blue-backed Speller. This book included several of Noah's poems. One of the poems was titled "The Boy Who Stole Apples." Noah gave several lectures on Central Government and on the English language. Noah Webster is most known for the Dictionary.

Noah was honored in many ways. General George Washington invited him to dinner and the Webster's Dictionary was named after him. That was a great honor. In May of 1843 Noah passed away, at the age of 84 in Amherst, Massachusetts. He is still remembered today.
