Vividly illustrated with bright, full-color illustrations by award-winning children's artists, books in the First Picture Dictionaries series speak to kids at progressive age levels. Books combine artwork and/or photo illustrations with bold and easy-to-read word labels and definitions. Parents are encouraged to use these books as aids in teaching children the preliminaries of reading and writing at home. The books also make great teacher_s helpers in classrooms, from Pre-K through early grades. With the delightfully illustrated My First School Dictionary, boys and girls take an intermediate step in learning and recognizing printed words. They are introduced to a dictionary's essential features, and then are presented with words-and-pictures listings to build their vocabulary. Each word to be learned is highlighted in color, and then is followed with full-sentence definitions and example sentences that demonstrate the word in a context. Kids are also shown different forms of the word, such as plural forms. A special section at the dictionary's end brings words together according to themes.
