Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Any young student should find this intuitive, well-designed thesaurus quite helpful, as well as useful, practical, handy, beneficial, and versatile.

If you have an aspiring wordsmith on your hands--or just a kid who's renowned for his prolific deployment of the words nice and okay--this 204-page thesaurus offers well over 1,000 primary entries and more than 10,000 supplementary entries using a clever on-the-page index. Instead of a traditional index, the Scholastic Student Thesaurus lists supplemental entries alphabetically on every single page. For example, helpful doesn't appear between helper and herb as a primary entry, but the index below on the same page refers young synonym-searchers to the main entry for useful. Each entry also contains part-of-speech labels, and many include usage notes and other synonym and antonym cross-references.

With its clean look, thoughtful introduction, and kid-friendly accessibility, the Scholastic Student Thesaurus makes a fine introduction to what may quickly become an indispensable, essential, fundamental writing tool. (Ages 10 and older) --Paul Hughes --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From School Library Journal

Grade 3-6-Featuring a significantly expanded pool of entries over its 1998 edition, Scholastic Children's Thesaurus, this volume takes a unique approach with its "on-the-page index" offering cross-references for more difficult words. Each entry features the term, part of speech, definition, and synonyms (in bold type). Though the previous edition offered more extensive information about the usage of each synonym, this edition widens students' knowledge of word connections, made clear through the visibility of each handy spread-specific index. The easy-to-use, expanded introduction will be a valuable resource to students who take the time to read it. The colorful illustrations of the previous edition have given way to more solid information; overall, this edition has less flash and more substance than its predecessor.

I have tried many different types of thesaurus (?) in my classroom. This one is easy for the students to read, and I like the related words section. My students use it on a regular basis. It's perfect for upper elementary.

I purchase these books for an elementary school donation every year. Always happy with them, and so are the students.

This is a great product for teaching about resource books with little ones, and teaching students how to use a variety of words in their writing. :)

For writers workshop having access to a good thesaurus can be rewarding and entertaining for kids. I like using them with kids to focus on all the parts we observe in funny pictures or with little pieces of nature brought into the classroom or from a high quality photograph from a good non fiction book.

Horrible!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Dictionary is WONDERFUL, but my 6 year old granddaughter gets frustrated with the Thesaurus. We have yet to find a word we needed. I'm talking about simple words like "happy" just as an example. I also work with preschoolers. It's not mature enough for them!

Great for getting kids started in looking up words, finding words and alphabetizing. Missing a few words we deem essential, but it should be essential to be able to look words up by book not just google.
