i tutor lower elementary kids and it's been hard finding a dictionary that suits their needs. a "my first dictionary" doesn't work because of the simple words and baby language, while most other dictionaries are complex and overwhelming since they are for high school kids. this dictionary is the only one i've found that falls in between. i highly recommed.

Each entry is printed in blue and the explanation is bold black or black, which make it very easy to read. Very well written. The paper is pretty white but not heavy. This is the only dictionary,that I found, a kid can really use with their little hands.

This is a perfect fit between the picture dictionaries lacking many words and the higher level dictionaries for high school and college. I think it fits the needs for grade 2 to 5. Possibly middle school as well. My kids aren't there yet so I'm not sure.

I bought this for my 8-year old to teach him to find words to spell.
This is a great product because:
- nice compact size, easy for kids to carry around
- font is readable and clear
- works for younger and older kids

I like the format of this dictionary, but within a few minutes my child could not find obvious words like "pelvis" -- they just aren't in it! So not recommended for 2nd grader and above.

Bought this with a set of pocket thesaurus which was required for school this year. Perfect size for backpack and nice big wording which is much better than the other dictionaries with the words so small, the words in this are in blue bold print. Perfect for school!

I was looking for a compact, light weight dictionary for my 9 year old to bring to school. This is a bit big to take back and forth. Otherwise, it is a good dictionary for children.

Great dictionary for my 9 year old daughter, just a little bulky.

This dictionary is fantastic for ESL students. It gives simple definitions, cleanly laid-out, without all the complicated etymology, etc... of regular dictionaries. It's just what the ESL teacher ordered!
