From antidisestablishmentarianism to pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, kids love discovering and trying their best to spit out some of the longest words in the English language, and a new book called 'Hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian' helps them to find a few more. The kid's book features a super-long word beginning with every letter of the alphabet, with each word being accompanied by a weird and playful illustration depicting its meaning.

Hippopotomonstrosesquipedalian, which is ironically defined as "of, or pertaining to, extremely long words", is a great book for kids to read with their parents. It's pretty safe to say that even lexicographically advanced parents aren't likely to know all the words in the book — let alone be able to pronounce them — so it includes a helpful pronunciation guide in the back.
