Product Description:

Beginning readers will appreciate this dictionary written just for them! This reference contains over 2000 age-appropriate vocabulary words. The book begins with an introductory section that teaches kids how to use the dictionary. Then it proceeds to the entries. The print size is large and easy to read, with about 8-10 entries per page. Guidewords appear at the top of each page, and entry words are in purple so they're easy to find. The definitions are complete sentences (ie. "A shed is a small building used to store things."), and sample sentences show how words are used in context. Full color captioned photos enhance the text and hold kids' interest. Some entries have feature notes which show sound-alikes, opposites, rhyming words, or related words. Different meanings of the same word are clearly distinguished, and irregular verb forms and noun plurals are listed at the end of each entry (when applicable). The bottom of each page has an alphabet border to reinforce "ABC order" skills. An appendix provides brief reviews of phonics and spelling concepts, plus commonly used word lists. 291 pgs, sc. ~ Lisa

Publisher Description:

The American Heritage® First Dictionary is written especially for 5–8 year olds. The meanings of more than 2,000 age-appropriate words are made clear in easy-to-read definitions and example sentences enhanced by 550 full-color photographs and drawings that appeal to today's visually sophisticated children. This brand new edition has been entirely redesigned into a two column format. It’s now paperback and has a larger trim size, making it lightweight yet still easy for young eyes to read. The entry words correlate with the vocabulary found in the curricula for the early primary grades, and this new edition has over 100 new words and senses, including creature, escape, parachute, and splash. The book features hundreds of engaging feature notes that show synonyms, opposites, rhyming words, and related words. These notes have been color-coded based on category, a feature new to this edition. The front matter includes a guide to using the dictionary that is useful for students, parents, and teachers alike. An instructive Phonics and Spelling Guide is included in the back-matter section to develop solid reading and writing skills.
