    I bought this for my seven year old daughter who has outgrown her picture dictionary The compiler's introduction says that he is targeting this at children 8 years and he sent out questionnaires to many primary school teachers to get their feedback on what sorts of words should be included It is a chunky little hardback with clear print and one or two small illustrations on each page much dictionary than picture and in that good in between place between picture dictionaries and adult dictionariesThe compiler has included some interesting front articles on the use of prefixes and suffixes what sorts of other languages English words derive from and other items of interest In the definitions he sometimes adds a little fact story such as the plural of chateau is chateaux because it's French or deadline originally came from a particular prison that had a line drawn around it that would cause the inmates to be shot at if they crossed it It is very 21st century words used include childminder and dyslexia though curiously not dyspraxia and even some proper nouns like Conservatives and Chancellor of the Exchequer I assume so children can follow the news on television?There are some weeny errors Aboriginal is an adjective not a noun and most stories that are academically classified as fairy tales do not actually have fairies in them Next edition please fact check a bit My daughter is starting to use it to follow what we're talking about in conversation What does that mean? Go look it up Often the definition will include words that she doesn't know either so she will look those up too I think it's right on the level for where she is at the moment and she's a very good reader for her age
