    Great Large Print

    I loved the fact that I don't have to squint my eyes to read, but it's a bit too heavy. I just started taking night classes and at school they have a large print dictionary and it's not as heavy. Overall I do recommend it.

    Great book to have in your library

    I purchased this dictionary for my 5 year old daughter because she is at the age where she is constantly asking me what words mean. So I figured this would be a great way to introduce her to the dictionary and enhance her vocabulary. I love the hard back, the print is exceptionally large. I did notice the "large print" on the front of the dictionary when I purchased it, but I wasn't expecting it to be that big, however the large print is great for her.
