    better than I had as a child

    I bought this book thru Barnes & Noble and ever since, whenever my son askes about something, we look it up here. This dictionary is much more thourough and detailed than those I had as a child, and my son and I alway find what he is seeking. A great book that no child should go without.

    Highly Recommended

    The internet is very useful but having a book at home when there is no electricity and when I don't want my kids to get used to a computer this dictionary is awesome...

    I bought this for my first grader. Overall it is a good dictionary but we have already found words in books she is reading that are not included in the dictionary.

    Great for school assignments

    My 2nd grader has been reluctant to use a dictionary and has complained that she doesn't know how it works, can't find words, is overwhelmed. This one is engaging and straightforward, and just challenging enough in the definitions to keep things interesting for her. She now uses it for homework and even gets distracted by words other than what she's looking for sometimes.

    Why my Grandchildren enjoy this book.

    They are encouraged to look words up that they don't understand. It is quite easy for even my second grader to do. They just automatically reach for it when they are doing their homework if they have a questionable word.

    Large print best for learning disabilities & dyslexia!

    As a dyslexia specialist I like that the print is large, that there is a pronunciation key on every other page and the most often used definitions are entered, not every definition. The resource information included is valuable!

    We love it!

    My daughter does the vocabulary program in Beestar.org. At first she was not used to the new words there, but after using this book as a handy dictionary, she really loves doing the exercise and gets high scores. We love this dictionary!
