Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
How do you describe the verb form of laugh? Try using another word such as: chortle, whoop, bubble, snigger, or split one's sides. What is the difference between to give away and to give back? One means to reveal and the other is to return. Over 800 entries are combined with 5,000 synonyms to aid children in making better word choices, thus improving their writing skills. Special color coded bars appear throughout the source. Green indicates a word bank which lists precise synonyms. Blue sections tell of expressions that have special meanings or are idioms. The red color alerts children that a word can be another part of speech or have a completely different meaning. For instance, the word raw can mean biting, bleak, or bitter. It can also mean uncooked. The thesaurus is easy to use and contains definitions for entry words and synonyms. Sample sentences are also included for each word listed. Entry words are very basic and would be more useful for the younger children in the age range. 2001, Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers/Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing, $16.95. Ages 8 to 12. Reviewer: Laura Hummel

    Nook edition formatted poorly, do NOT buy

    The Nook edition is formatted very poorly. It also does not have the important and necessary color coding, so you cannot tell which one is the entry word and which are the synonyms easily. Avoid!!!
