Kevin Kennedy, a local author, is taking action to educate kids.

Today he joins the WGNT Morning Show to talk about his book, "Ten Dollar Words For Kids".

This weekend, Kevin will be holding a book signing at Barnes & Noble in MacArthur Center Mall in Norfolk.

The event will be held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Here is a little background info on the book:

Gregarious, prestidigitation, onomatopoeia? These are words you may not have heard before, let alone use, but a local retired military dad has found a way to make these $10 words fun!

His book, "Ten Dollar Words For Kids", is written to broaden your child's vocabulary...and possibly even your own! In the online world of abbreviations, Kevin is trying to help educate kids about the English language.
