As a child moves from 5 years old to 6, they will start to ask questions about things and words that are out of the scope of our "expertise". We found the solution to this problem with this book, MERRIAM-WEBSTER CHILDREN'S DICTIONARY (Ages 4-8). "Over 35,000 entries and more than 3,000 full-color illustrations", this reference guide will satisfy the inquisitive mind of your junior scientist at home. This dictionary is kid-approved as my son spotted it on the library shelf himself and could not be separated from it until he had his own copy. As he opened the pages and progressed from only looking at the pictures to fully digesting the definitions, we got the quiet time we needed and he got the answers he was looking for, accurately from DK's renowned language experts.
