John K. Bollard's thesaurus, playfully illustrated by Mike Reed, contains more than 500 main "headwords" and 2,500 synonyms, but if you can't find the word you're looking for--"energetic," for example--you can flip to the index in the back where you'll find "Energetic--See Lively." Lively leads you to "active," "energetic," and "vigorous." All synonyms include a definition as well as one or more sample sentences. This fine thesaurus--paired with the Scholastic Children's Dictionary--will help any young writer make appropriate word choices, think more critically about language, and therefore proceed to the head of the class!

However, it is up to you, parents, to have your kids to use this book. If your precious asks you for a word definition - don't just tell them, send them to look it up in the book, you know, like "...give them a fish/teach them fishing..." story.
This thesaurus has enough definitions and based on my humble opinion - a must!
