Kids take a giant step toward learning to use adult-style dictionaries with this illustrated word book. A step-by-step introduction shows kids what the dictionary can teach them about words, and how they can get the most out of the book's features. Each word is supplemented with a color illustration or photo and an easy definition. Additional information includes the word's part of speech (noun, verb, etc.), and other words that are derived from it -- for instance, as "bravely" and "bravery" are derived from the adjective, "brave". Example sentences included. (Ages 7-12)
