Bought this for my elementary school children for homework help. Why would a children's dictionary begin each section anywhere but at the beginning? For example: The section with letter "c" begins with the word "calamity, calculate, calculaion", etc. What happened to words that begin with letter before the letter "L"? Take a look at letter "t" and you'll find the first entry is "take" --- not sure why they would omit words beginning with letters before "k" but this is what happened throughout the book. Out of the 12,000 synonyms and 10,000 antonyms offered, 75% of the words my kids needed to look up were not even in the book. As for antonyms, unless you need the oddball words that are included in this paperback, you won't find much help here at all. I give it two stars only because it is colorful and there is a useful brief section in the back with Parts of Speech which is helpful if your kid needs to be reminded of the differences between pronouns, adverbs, prepositions, etc.
In general, I think Scholastic is better for fiction and non-fiction books, not for reference guides. I will stick with Webster or Roget next time.

Scholastic continues to provide high-quality reference sources at affordable prices. This paperback, revised in 2012, offers a pleasing colorful cover that includes photos of the new Children's Dictionary and Pocket Dictionary on the back. The introduction includes information on what synonyms, antonyms, and homonyms are and where to find them in the book; my experience with students is that they rarely read an introduction, particularly one in a reference book, so descriptions or definitions might better be placed at the beginning of the synonym/antonym and homonym sections. The use of color to make each word (synonym/antonym/homonym) stand out will certainly be helpful to users. A bonus section at the end of the book list "The Parts of Speech" and includes types of nouns, verbs, advjectives, adverbs, prepositions, pronouns, conjunctions, and interjections and how to use them. A solid purchase. Highly recommended.

My granddaughter struggled in this area until I purchased this text. It as great point size so she does not need to strain to read the words. I am amazed the schools do not recommend this as an optional supplement to their regular textbooks. I am amazed schools do not teach children the essentials anymore. We need to get back to basics and stop trying to emulate other countries. It also has colorful pictures to help in the understanding. I highly recommend this text. Money well spent!

I work in the newspaper business and got these as a prize for winners of a spelling bee! They loved it and it was so much more exciting than giving them a regular old dictionary! Very useful!

Good listing!
Good for elementary school students...may need something more advanced for middle and high school. Easy to read--comparable to a thesaurus.
