The one question club members ask that gets the most hands in the air and accompanying smiles is, "How many of you students have an older brother or sister who's told you what's going to happen this morning?" And the most popular item the students want to find right away is "the longest word in the English Language"--it's 1,909 letters long, so look it up (we can't print it here because it would make this article way too long!).
The books the Rotary Club gives each student are more than just "dictionaries." In addition to their 35,000 words and definitions, they also include weights and measures, a periodic table of the elements, ASL and Braille, the American Declaration of Independence and Constitution, information about each of the 50 U.S. states, and much, much more.
