Product Description:

This large, colorful dictionary invites hours of browsing! It presents age-appropriate vocabulary words in alphabetical order. The main entry words are set in red type, so they're easy to find. All entries are labeled with the parts of speech and include concise definitions that are easy for kids to understand. Other features (which vary by entry) include: pronunciation helps, cross-references, sample sentences, usage labels, homophones, and related words/word forms. Every page has colorful captioned photos and illustrations that provide visual examples of some of the entries. Interesting language tip boxes appear throughout the dictionary, describing word origins and usage information. Another unique feature is the "About this letter" boxes that appear on the opening page of each new letter. Each box provides interesting facts about the letter or spelling/pronunciation tips. The back of the dictionary contains a reference section with several language guides (thesaurus, grammar, punctuation, idioms and initials/acronymns/abbreviations). It also includes numbers and measurement tables; statistics on the U.S. presidents; and a geography section with maps and flags of the U.S., Canada and world. 864 pgs, hc. ~ Lisa

Appeared to have a sufficient amount of entries (words) for my 6 year old who is very verbal; read a few and liked the definitions. Also wanted to introduce the "dictionary" to him as a fun book so the many colorful pictures help that. the book is for students who are a little older so it will last him. But I like that I can introduce a dictionary that looks fun.
