Wonderfull, my daughter loves it and loves to look at the exculsive pictures to go with the words and definitions. First dictionary and will be with us a long time.
I love all of Scholastic's Children's Dictionaries and this one is no exception. It's an amazing first dictionary. My children at home and the 20 first graders in my classroom cannot seem to put it down (and I need to admit that I am also in that category!). It is extremely engaging with great colorful pictures and photographs and the large print makes it easy for young readers to understand. The guide words are also in large print and easy to read at the top of each page. The extras in the front and in the back are equally amazing. Thanks again, Scholastic, for putting out a quality product.
