Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-7 More than 2000 entries with an average of 3 synonyms per entry. Many of the entries include an antonym printed in red type. A section entitled ``Using the Thesaurus'' explains entry words, guide words, synonyms and antonyms. It also elaborates upon words with more than one meaning and words that are spelled alike. The format is open and non-threatening, making the book accessible to young readers. The black-and-white line drawings are pleasant but unnecessary. Clear and Simple Thesaurus Dictionary (Grosset, 1971) by the same authors has the same format but contains more entries and a more difficult choice of words. A handy and valuable reference book.

This is an excellant resource to be combined with the dictionary. Children tend to be repetitive and this is a good way to help them select other words to use in a story or report. Also, my greatniece found it fun just to study the words, illustrations, and the choices. She is in first grade. They are assigned a writing tast each week. I have this as a ready referance where she does creative writing. I do not think this is in her classroom but I would srongly recommend each student in the class have one to refer to and to learn its use as a tool in writnig. Budget limitations challenge my suggestion. Ir would be a worthwhile donation if someone asks for a suggestion.

This is the best Thesaurus I've seen. I am a special education teacher and have tried several dictionaries and reference items. This book has a crystal-clear lay-out that my students find very user-friendly. My son uses it as a quick dictionary reference. It is less complex to understand than most dictionaries. He willingly and voluntarily looks up unknown vocabulary. Good for teaching synonyms and antonyms (color-coded). Definitely a bargain for the price.
