I previewed several children's dictionaries, and liked the quality of the paper, the size of the type, the amount and arrangement of both white space and illustrations, and (most of all) the easy-to-understand definitions in The American Heritage Children's Dictionary.

Are there guide words at the top of the pages in this dictionary?
A shopper on Jul 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: At the top of each page is the first and last word. For example, I turned to a random page and "dish-->dismal" is at the top.
