A beginner's dictionary written for children in grades K-2, ages 5-7. Introduces young readers to almost 3,000 words using 1,000 entries-many new and revised for 2012-with hundreds of captivating illustrations by Ruth Heller. Full sentences are used to discuss definitions, common phrases, and usage examples in age-appropriate language to show how words are used in context. Many entries include alternate meanings, word histories, related words, and the way words sound. Teaches basic dictionary skills: alphabetization, spelling, parts of speech, letter sounds, use of synonyms and antonyms, homographs and homophones. Jokes, riddles, poems, and fun facts based on word play make learning fun. References to popular stories, fairy tales, myths, and nursery rhymes spark imagination and encourage language exploration.
