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.

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.

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!

It feels weird rating a dictionary but I have actually seen a bad one :-) I bought this for my son several years ago and it is very useful. My poor neice is always having a hard time spelling words and then can't find them in her dictionary! How useful is that. I tried to go through it once to give her rhyming words, there were so many words from the English language missing! I'm not sure who that book was published for (I will review it next because Amazon sells it). I ordered this one for her recently and now she is on track with homework (when she is cooperating to complete it...kids.

This is a good child dictionary.

This is a lovely dictionary. The entries are clear and easy to read and understand. There are some great illustrations and a helpful little section on how to use the dictionary. It is a little heavy for carrying around, but perfect to live on the shelf and pull out when they need it. I am really pleased with this purchase.

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.

I think this is a perfect dictionary for early elementary. The short definitions are wonderful and the pictures are great. This book is more for fun for little ones to look through and learn. Also to start practicing alphabetizing and looking up words. However now that we are in the third grade there are, more often than not, words we want to look up that are not there.

We don't find the book too heavy as we simply put it on the table and flip through when we need to look something up.
