Product Description

From Amazon

A decades-old dictionary that you can still use today (and know that children will love it) is an amazing testament to the genius of the Seuss stable. The roughly 12-per-page colored drawings are dated, of course--the humans far more than the animals, funnily enough--but they've aged in a way that adds to their charm rather than detracting from it. (Phonograph may take some explaining; ditto typewriter, which we recently heard described as "like a computer, only with paper instead of a screen.") The 1,350 words are well balanced between the obvious stuff--common nouns and verbs--and more abstract language, from about to yet. Each word is accompanied by a drawing and an illustrative sentence. Along the way, naturally, we meet a wacky menagerie of humans and animals: "Aaron the alligator making more machines," "Aunt Ada standing on her head," etc. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr

Format: Hardcover
I had this book when I was a child, and I absolutely LOVED it! (I'm 34, now). I referred to it over and over throughout primary school. I really enjoyed the pictures, and I think it helped me with my vocabulary in school. (My reading level was always at least 4-5 grade levels above the grade I was currently in). I am purchasing this book for my baby, so he will have it to use when he needs it. (I wore the other one out long ago).

Format: Hardcover
This book has beautiful Dr. Seuss pictures to clearly illustrate simple words for beginning readers. The only thing I don't like about the book is that it doesn't have written definitions as well.
