Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Children's Literature

The bright cover and colorful, detailed illustrations show this dictionary to be a fun and attractive resource that is a sharp contrast to the more traditional, somber, hardcover dictionaries found in most libraries.

Children's Literature
True to its name, this book carries just enough information to allow it to fit snugly in the smaller front pocket of a backpack. It is lightweight and paperback, which makes flipping through the pages easy. The bright cover and colorful, detailed illustrations show this dictionary to be a fun and attractive resource that is a sharp contrast to the more traditional, somber, hardcover dictionaries found in most libraries. The definitions are concise and simply worded, making this a great tool for new readers looking to expand their vocabularies. The publishers have also included a brief tutorial entitled “How to make the most of your dictionary,” which provides a key to how the definitions are formatted as well as an explanation of the different types of information to be found in each entry, including alternative forms of the word, usage labels, and even example sentences. Another page offers “Help with spelling” to teach readers about conjugation. Reviewer: Jamie E. West

    Great Dictionary for Young Readers

    I bought this for my 7-year-old son who loves words. The illustrations are nice. The definitions are neither over-simplified nor excessively wordy. This is a good dictionary for first- and second-graders and any other young readers.
