Editorial Reviews

One of the challenges when designing books for children is to present information in a way that is appealing to them. The second edition of The Kingfisher Children's Illustrated Dictionary and Thesaurus meets this challenge. The design of the book makes it intuitive for students to use. . . . The illustrations and information on these pages will spark the imagination of the reader. . . . This book would be a good resource for elementary-school-age students and is recommended for both elementary-school and public libraries.
Revised from the 2003 edition, this new combination dictionary and thesaurus has a slightly more sophisticated look with the same basic features. Students can learn proper pronounciation, parts of speech, and spelling tips. Illustrations accompany many of the entries, and full page spreads on random topics add interest.
The clear definitions of words will help to strengthen a young person's vocabulary...The pictures and drawings complement and clarify the definitions.
