Fun and easy to use, The Junior Illustrated Dictionary & Thesaurus is the ideal choice for upper elementary and middle-school children who are beginning to expand their vocabulary. Comprehensive and authoritative, it defines more than 4,000 words with clear, age-appropriate entries, and also includes a thesaurus with more than 5,000 headwords.

Plenty of sample sentences offer further clarification, while the intuitive pronunciation guides make difficult words easy to say.

Hundreds of bright photographs and illustrations contribute extra vocabulary information and make this book a verbal and visual treasure trove.

Special features include
•Full-color, high-interest topic boxes provide an in-depth look at selected subjects and related vocabulary
•Color-coded guide words and alphabet strings on page edges that make words easy to look up
•Vocabulary panels
•Definitions clearly identifying parts of speech, different word forms, and alternate spellings
•Information about synonyms, antonyms, and key language topics

Review

Children's Literature
The clear definitions of words will help to strengthen a young person's vocabulary...The pictures and drawings complement and clarify the definitions.

From Booklist

This version appears to be identical to The Kingfisher Illustrated Junior Dictionary (1997) for ages 7 to 10 except that most of the special features have been eliminated in favor of a thesaurus. The dictionary portion has approximately 4,000 entries and 600 illustrations; the thesaurus has more than 5,000 headwords. RBB
