I purchased this for my son who is 10 and in 4th grade. The description did say for "late elementary school". Well, more times than not, a word my son needed to look up for homework was not in this dictionary. I'd say this edition is good for kids first getting acquainted with a dictionary as it is not intimidating, the definitions are at elementary reading level, and the pictures are a nice touch. However, by the time a kid is in 4th grade, this dictionary just isn't "meaty" enough. Also, it did not come with the CD as described.

This dictionary is excellent for children. As a teacher I totally recommend it particularly for children who have difficulty reading and spelling. Colour coded, it is easy to use especially to reinforce the skill of "looking up" a word. Each word is listed in its own right....not as a derivitatve of another word with clear examples of meanings.
Our group of dyslexic children are all confident and happy when using this dictionary.

My daughter is in Kindergarten and needed a dictionary to help her with the occasional homework assignment as well as to satisfy her curiosity about words. I purchased this dictionary, and I hoped she would take to it. She really enjoys using this dictionary. She likes looking at the pictures interspersed throughout the dictionary, and I appreciate that the definitions are the right length and level for the audience. This will take her through elementary school easily. Great reference book for the price!

The font are large enought for the elementary student. The explanation is simple but sufficient. But it is kind of too heavy for the little hands.. Overall, it is an excellent desktop dictionary for young students

Webster's is known for quality dictionaries and this book will not disappoint. It is well and succinctly written. It provides some photos, graphics, drawings that are of good quality. In my opinion, never enough. I like lots more color to attract and retain the attention of chldren. It contains tens of thousands of entries. It contains word type (e.g., noun, verb), pronunciation, and pluralization (e.g., what's the plural of hippopotamus). 928 pages. Thick. Most important: the begining tells children how to use a dictionary very effectively. The last 50 pages show children a thesaurus and how it's used, an atlas, weights and measures, US presidents, states' summaries. This is great! Sitting with the kids, they were open and entertained and had fun. Me, too. I think all children ought to own a dictionary. I give this product a solid "A" and I recommend it for classrooms, school libraries, and all children with abilities in the 9 - 12 age group.

No more will my 8 year old ask me how to spell a word. What a great way to teach your son how to begin referencing material. Font size and pictures are perfect for children from 1st grade on up to middle school.

I use a dictionary in my work with dyslexic children every day, and provide a dictionary as part of a take-home kit. I have researched a great number of dictionaries myself, and I am a part of a network of over 500 professionals, who have all done their own research looking for the ideal dictionary for this job. We all agree that tis is the best one by far.

Purchased this book for my 4th grader. Yesterday she brought home a dozen words that she needed to look up in a dictionary and write the definition. THIS DICTIONARY HAD ONLY ONE OF THE WORDS. Since I had just recently purchased this book, I will be returning it. Not a good dictionary for children at all. Thought I was getting the best when I bought Webster's. Highly disappointed.
