Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
This dictionary for young readers begins with a section that explains how to find a word, what information will be given about each word, and an explanation of the different forms of words. For help in finding words, there are two guidewords at the top of most pages and an alphabet border at the bottom. In the border, the letter that every word starts with on that page is white and outlined in blue. For each word entry, the word is simply defined and then used in a sentence to clarify the meaning. Multiple meanings are listed, and irregular verb forms and irregular plurals are given at the end of the entry. Small captioned photographs used throughout appeal to a child's interests. For example, next to the definition of wig is a photo of a clown in a purple wig; Next to the word "uniform" is a photo of boys in their soccer team uniforms. Extra information concerning some words is given in boxes next to the definition. These notes show opposites, rhyming words, and related words. Sections at the end of the book include phonics and spelling, special names for words, words that sound alike, compound words, common word groups, and pairs of opposites. This is an excellent resource book for children in the early grades for use at home or in school.
