_The_Clear_and_Simple_Thesaurus_Dictionary is the most practical thesaurus I have found for use with my fourth- and fifth-grade students. Unlike many thesauruses, it is formatted in a style that students (and adults!) will find familiar and easy to use. While not as comprehensive in scope as those designed for college use, this thesaurus allows students the satisfaction of finding synonyms or associated words for almost any word they might need. I had not found this to be true of other "beginning" thesauruses, which was a frustration to both my students and to me. This gem was a major find, and is now in regular use in my classroom. I highly recommend it to any teacher of intermediate or junior high age students, as well as to parents who want a truly helpful resource for their school-age children.

I could not expect anything more from a thesauras. This has all the words I, through my preteen years, have needed, without boggling my mind with lots of words that I never try to use. I don't feel overwhelmed, but I DO find the information I need.

This thesaurus is:
Fantastic
Excellent
High Quality
Stupendous
Superiour
and least, but not last, very good!
All joking aside, it's a thesaurus. It's a good value and as good as any other thesaurus.

A dissapointment Jan. 3 2007
By C. L. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has, unfortunately, been a disappointment for me. From reading the reviews written by others, I had high hopes for it, but it has not lived up to them in my family's particular experience. I bought this dictionary specifically for my son (age 12) to use, but literally every time he has tried to use it to look up a word he needs, it happens to be a word that has not been included. Just our dumb luck, I guess, but it seems this book is better suited to those in grades 1-4 and probably not beyond that.

"EXTREMELY USEFUL, ENHANCES VOCABULARY, TEACHES THE USE OF SYNONYMS AND ANTONYMS!" Sept. 22 2014
By Geraldine Ahearn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I purchased this book several years ago in a local bookstore, when my daughter was entering the fifth grade. She had difficulty in reading skills, and comprehension. In addition, she needed a dictionary to not only enhance reading and comprehension skills, but a thesaurus that was simple, and concise. This book was the perfect choice, and it helped her a great deal for many years, while she used it as her favorite reference.

This book not only defines words in simple terms, but also teaches the use of synonyms, and antonyms. There are hundreds of lists of words, words are given with similar meaning, and is an introduction to words the student may not already know. This book will enhance vocabulary, and is a great learning tool. Highly recommended!

Good first thesaurus. Nov. 21 2009
By X Sloane - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
After looking through many thesaurus (for children and adults) to find a good one for my first grader, I chose this one. It is easy to use. Print is not too little. The only thing that I am not crazy about is the size of the book, a little too big, but nothing too bad. Overall I think it is the best choice for an elementary school student who loves to write!
