The Oxford First Illustrated Dictionary; beautifully illustrated by well-known picture book artist Emma Chichester Clark; is the perfect first building block for 5-7 year-olds to engage with words and language. Over 2000 entries give clear meanings and definitions; parts of speech; word forms; word families; synonyms and opposites to build vocabulary and first literacy skills.
Not just a dictionary; this unique book brings to life the world of fairy tales; nursery rhymes; and picture books that children love. Winnie the Pooh and Georgie Porgie appear alongside Aladdin and Cinderella in the innovative example sentences. Rhyming words; little words hiding in big words; and riddles provide plenty of opportunities for fun word play; along with amusing word jokes and child-friendly word origins. The entry for 'crocodile' tells the child that the word comes from a Greek word meaning 'lizard' and ends with the joke: 'What's a crocodile's
favourite game? Snap.'
This wealth of information and fun with words is presented in a contemporary; easy-to-use; engaging layout; creating the most accessible and affordable dictionary and gift-book combination; the perfect buy for Christmas and holidays as well as for everyday use
