Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—The most noticeable changes in the new edition of this perennial favorite are stylistic; the design is more restrained and less cutesy than that of the 2007 edition, with smaller print. The volume appears to be targeted at children who are more visually savvy than previous generations. Frames on each page; tabs running along the edges of the pages showing which letter is being featured; and eye-popping, full-color photos mimic the cleanest of webpage designs. There are content updates, too: the endpapers now feature full-color world maps, and 1000 new photos and illustrations supplement the definitions. Boxes feature more word histories and sample sentences than in previous editions, and a directory of U.S. presidents, complete with pictures and facts, joins the thesaurus, grammar, punctuation, idiom, acronym, and flag information in the supplementary material.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD

It uses simple words. We bought it for our 6 years old girl.

Great reference for children understanding words used in language form. Therefore, they then can put those words to use in their own stories. Advantage to pick up a good reference vs the computer. More hands on that way as well as pictures.

I try to get this dictionary in homes of ESL students of all ages--good for parents and children, especially as a transition from reliance on Spanish-English dictionaries. Encourages students to begin to think about English in English.
