Oxford Children's Dictionaries and Reference

Oxford children's dictionaries and thesauruses have been conceived and put together specifically for children and the school curriculum. Oxford does not publish cut-down versions of adult dictionaries for kids, but rather considers the way in which they use dictionaries and the way in which they process language. Advanced children and young adults might find a larger dictionary with more coverage and adult conventions suitable for their needs. For most children (ages 14 and younger), however, it is essential that they have a children's dictionary and thesaurus that is accurately matched to their needs.
