This dictionary includes nearly 70,000 entries with authoritative definitions, spellings, and pronunciations to help students write and speak effectively. Appropriate for middle-grade students. 1008 pgs, hc.

We have the children's dictionary and there are many words my kids cannot find in that one. Hoping this one expands their vocabulary more without including inappropriate words like the adult ones would have.

Purchased for my elementary and middle school boys. I purchased adult dictionaries for them last year, but the definitions are a bit complex for their comprehension. I wanted them to still have a large selection of words available with understandable definitions.

A better choice for youths than an adult dictionary.
A much better choice for my 4th and 6th grader than an adult dictionary's denotations.
