Barron's Junior Rhyming Dictionary

Front Cover
Barrons Educational Series, 2006 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 160 pages
Here is an extra-fun vocabulary builder for kids, and a rhyming dictionary they can also use as a spelling aid when they look up words belonging to similar rhyming patterns. Key words are listed alphabetically in extra large type--approximately two-to-four key words per page--each followed by a list of rhyming words. Each page also features humorous, cartoon-style color illustrations that relate to the words. Many illustrations have rhyming captions. For example, a shark bites a chunk from an unhappy fisherman's boat, and the caption reads: "My bite is worse than my bark," said the shark. / "With my teeth I leave my mark!" A section near the back of the book encourages kids to compose their own humorous verse, and explains rules for writing limericks, nonsense nursery rhymes, counting rhymes, rhyming riddles, rapping rhymes, and more. Kids will find hundreds of key words, each accompanied by a full array of rhyming words. A detailed index lists all words and rhymes. Hundreds of color illustrations.
