Product Description

With more than 35,000 entries, this unique children's dictionary is just as thorough as many adult reference works. What makes it especially unique are the 3,000+ full-color, labeled DK photographs. Carefully chosen for their ability to illuminate a word, they include labels that pinpoint individual features to further expand vocabulary; diagrams/models/cross sections; and collections that establish objects within a single theme. The text is also carefully worded, using plain-language definitions that are easy for children to understand. "Word History" boxes provide historical information on various words, synonym notes are included, examples show how words are used, and full-page/half-page boxes bring additional understanding to complex topics. 960 pages, hardcover.

Please Note This book features sidebars, photographs, & features that promote an evolutionary worldview & timelines espouse an old-earth time scale.

Q: Are the webster dictionaries safe for children? We do not want any profane words in our child's dictionary. Do you have such a product?

A:

This dictionary is safe for children. Legitimate words that could be considered as profanity contain only their legitimate definitions with a note that they can be misused. The safest dictionary would be "Webster's American Dictionary of the English Language, 1828 Edition".
