Collins Illustrated Junior Dictionary has been especially written
to support the needs of children aged 6 to 8. It introduces key
dictionary features such as showing parts of speech (noun, verb,
adjective or adverb) and other forms of a word (for example plurals
or past tense of a verb). The clear, spacious layout, colour
headwords, guidewords at the top of each page plus the A--Z 'tab'
index on each page ensure that the dictionary is easy-to-use.
Bright, colourful illustrations and photographs support language
learning AND make it fun. Full sentence definitions and example
sentences show the headword used in a context familiar to children.
The Collins Word Wizard section gives extra help with illustrated
topic pages, support for writing and using the Internet as well as
really useful word lists and games to play. Written by established
children's dictionary author, Evelyn Goldsmith.
