A review – Oxford Illustrated Children’s Dictionary

What a nice children’s dictionary!  Kiddo (6yo who reads well) just sat down and looked through it.  She really liked the bright colors and the pictures (one or two per page).  She was disappointed that it did not include the word ‘ballet,’  but she did find the word gymnastics.  She spent some time reading the front pages that tell about grammar and how to use the dictionary.

Honey has an electronic dictionary that works well for her, but I think that this just became Kiddo’s new dictionary.  It has 50,000 words in it and should work great for now!  I don’t know if it is because it is a great dictionary or because Kiddo is just weird, but she did just spend 15 min. reading it.  I’ll go with it being a good dictionary, cause I keep flipping through it myself.

Disclaimer:  I received a free copy of this book to review.  Even so, I write whatever I want to about it.

    Yeah! But never a DICTIONARY! (Well, maybe the front pages, but not the main part….)
