4.0 out of 5 stars First step dictionary Aug. 7 2011
By ibsoom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
shipment was quick and the dictionary cover and pages are of good quality. Definitely attracts children's attention with pictures and colors.
I bought it as a first hand experience for my 5 year old daughter as she can read short stories and is interested in learning more about words. But I definitely think that this dictionary will not work after two years. there r two reasons:
1. limited words in the dictionary
2. The word description is just for the very beginners. there r no synonyms so vocabulary is also limited.
My daughter will start kindergarten this year but because I was teaching her at home, she is capable of reading short stories herself, and I think until she reaches first grade she will be ahead of this dictionary. As a child I remember I got frustrated when a dictionary helps me 50%. So when I tried to look up a few words in this dictionary from my daughter's story book, I found only a few and the rest were not there.
words like

fancy
struck
maid
lane

were not there.

3. my third problem might not seem reasonable to many people but I feel it. why these common words are not there but 'bikini' was there with picture? also when you describe the word "kiss" it does not seem appropriate to show a 14 year old girl kissing 14 year old boy. it could be a mother kissing her child or father or grand parents or in any other form.

If this dictionary is specially meant for kids between 5-8 years old which I think is the exact appropriate age for this level. I think such things look ridiculous and also look quite intimidating. A 14 year old is sure not to have this dictionary. Why give such thoughts to a 5 or 6 year old child? It does not look nice. Even if it was mother and father kissing, it would have been some thing practical and natural. Choosing an inappropriate age level gives wrong vision to kids.

thats just my opinion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes Words Fun! March 9 2010
By Shannon Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
We had bought 3 dictionaries for our family (one for our 1st grader, one that's suitable for 3rd grade through middle school, and finally one for high school and college. This one I have to say has exceeded my expectations. It is easy for my 7 year old brother to use and makes him very excited about words. He likes to use the next dictionary up as well to show off to his older brother how easy it is to use, but he still loves this one. He'll sit there for an hour and just explore the words and definitions inside along with the beautiful pictures.

I highly recommend this dictionary for younger students. My brother is 7 and in 1st grade and this is absolutely wonderful for a child who is still learning how to go from the phonetic spellings to the actual correct spelling, it also helps to make it less stressful with the colorful layout and beautiful pictures. This will help your child to get a jump start on being smart when it comes to using resources such as dictionaries in order to look up spellings and definitions.

A great buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Kid's Dictionary! Sept. 12 2009
By PeaTee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This dictionary by Dorling Kindersley is just what a child's reference book should be. It is sturdy and brightly attractive and my children often ask me to sit down with them and just look at the various pictures and talk about what word goes with them.

Beyond that I have found it to be a mommy life-saver because this same child --and now my son-- will ask me what something means and I find myself at a loss as to how to explain the word in simple enough terms. Ta-da! the DK Illustrated dictionary. Their explanations are short and perfect; and although it is not a comprehensive dictionary (you will not find words like impugn and insolent) it is certainly the best one that my hubby and I have found on the market.

By B. Nathan - Published on Amazon.com

Was looking for a while for the 'perfect' dictionary for my 7 1/2 year old, and finally found it. He loves this book and uses it not only as a reference for words he is not familiar with, but he loves to read it for fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good children's dictionary Nov. 21 2010
By kidsmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This dictionary is very easy for my 5 year-old to use and understand. Whenever he has a question about a word, he pulls out this dictionary. It is a huge relief on my part, since I have trouble explaining what some of the words mean (even the simple ones at times).
