The Kingfisher First Dictionary is the ideal introductory dictionary for young children. One thousand five hundred entry words are clearly defined, and each word is used in a sample sentence to reinforce understanding of its usage. Over 1,000 colour photographs and illustrations enhance definitions. Coloured letter sidebars allow children to move quickly through the book to find the page they want. The dictionary includes a variety of resources that makes it enjoyable to explore and help making learning fun. 'Wordplay' boxes suggest word games and activities that help children develop stronger language skills. Themed picture pages explore one topic in depth and broaden the young reader's vocabulary. Spelling tips are placed in highlighted boxes, and alert children to words that sound the same, but are spelled differently. Key word lists provide information about grammar, days, months, numbers, money and measurement.
