Overview
Here is a new, easy-to-use, comprehensive dictionary with over a thousand full-color illustrations, and 20,000 entries. The Oxford Children's Dictionary boasts a number of features that make it an ideal reference work for young children. It offers crystal clear definitions, which include pronunciation guides for difficult words (such as guerilla or ricochet) and up-to-date example sentences that show how words are used in context. It has an attractive layout, with headwords in color and numerous illustrations on every page.

There are usage notes and no confusing abbreviations-parts of speech and inflections are written in full. The Dictionary also includes panels on word origins and words in the same family, all designed to help encourage the accurate use of language. Finally, the Dictionary includes an informative introduction and key on how to get the best out of the dictionary. With a colorful, family-friendly format and broad coverage of the types of words young people will encounter, Oxford Children's Dictionary is a must-have resource for every home library.
