Item Description...
Outline ReviewDesigned as a transition dictionary for readers in late-elementary school, Webster's New World Children's Dictionary bridges the gap between simple, picture-based dictionaries and the dull-but-necessary ones we all reach for when faced with unknown words. The medium-sized text, example sentences that accompany most definitions, and the miniature pronunciation guide on every page all work nicely together to ensure that kids will understand correct usage without getting overwhelmed with detail. Also included are maps, history and geography pages, and an introductory thesaurus. Especially helpful for younger users is the 10-page guide to dictionary usage, which covers synonyms, homonyms, and the ever-important ways to look up a word when you don't know how to spell it in the first place.

In general, the definitions are easily understandable for children ages 7 to 12, providing accurate answers without being verbose. In Webster's New World College Dictionary, "rebel" is described as "one who engages in armed resistance against the established government of one's country." In this version, you'll find the more kid-friendly definition "a person who fights against any kind of control or authority." The disk that accompanies the text version of the dictionary will be especially helpful to fifth and sixth graders using a home computer for papers and book reports, but chances are it won't replace your word processor's spell checker. It loads quickly and easily, but its special feature may actually annoy some users: an automatic pull-down menu starts churning out possible words as soon as you type the first letter, so it may end up frustrating rather than assisting in your word hunt. Educational games are also included on the disk, but they only work with older, 8-bit video cards. --Jill Lightner

Excellent choice for Elementary Student  Jun 4, 2008
I researched several elementary dictionaries before I chose this one. I gave each of my first grade students this dictionary as a reward for participating in my year-long Whiz Kids decoding words game. The dictionary is very usable, colorful, appealing to elementary students. My students were so excited. They will find it useful for years to come. The hardback edition will take a lot of abuse. The section on how to find a word when you don't know how to spell it is so helpful! The Flags of Every Nation caught their attention right away. Excellent resource book!
So simple to use perfect for my son  May 4, 2008
My son is 4 and we use this dictionary to look up words he wants to know the meaning of. We also use the book as part of geography lessons. He is learning the states and their capitals. Of course that is just an example but I consider this a valuable book and love knowing I have a back up when Mommy does not know the true meaning of a new word. I see where this will help for Kindergarten and grades to come.
Good Dictionary  Feb 17, 2008
This dictionary is very well made and easy to use for a child. However, it did not have the first word we went to look up in it. Disapppointing. Other than that, good purchase for my second grader.
mjacks  Nov 2, 2007
Its been great for my third grade granddaughter. She enjoys looking up words for herself now. It's easy to read and it helps her with her pronunciation. I will be buying another for my other granddaughter for xmas.
Kids choice  Oct 10, 2007
