My son loves it...and craves to read it
on June 20, 2001
Although my son is only in first grade...heading into second, he has found this dicionary to be a wealth of knowledge. It has not only been helpful in looking up words he is uncertain of, but it is also entertaining enough for him to explore all on his own as a book of knowledge. It is actually helping him learn how to read. The pictures in it are accurate and interest grabbing. This is helping him to read and learn as his interest is piqued by the illustrations and he constantly picks it up just to thumb through it and "read" it. I am a teacher and I do feel this is one of the best dictionaries out there for the students just learning to read and look up definitions. For students at a higher level, I recommend the MacMillan Dictionary for Students. My daughter who is in 4th grade- heading into 5th- has found it invaluable. Both of these dictonaries are the BEST out there. I highly recommend the MacMillan First Dictionary & MacMillan Dictionary for Students based on my experience as an educator and a mother.
