Book Description

14 Sep 2000

This is Merriam-Webster's Elementary Dictionary, written especially for you, a student in one of the elementary grades. I;t is designed to be your very first real dictionary. This dictionary is more advanced than the simple picture dictionaries meant for children who are not in school yet. I;t has many of the features of the larger dictionaries that grown-ups use. Yet the definitions are in plain language that you will find easy to understand.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent study aid for lower grades! 23 May 2007
By Betty J. Schirmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I purchased hard cover Merriam-Webster's Elementary Dictionary for each one of my First Grade Class to give at the end of the school year as a special prize. The next day two of the boys brought their dictionaries back to school with ALL of the bird pictures in the dictionary marked to show me. Each one could also read the description of the birds pictured. This is a very complete, well illustrated dictionary for any American child aged 6-14. I can see years of use for each dictionary as the children progress to upper levels. I plan to purchase the same dictionary for my class next year. I have several Scholastic dictionaries in the classroom but they are not as well researched as Merriam-Webster.

4.0 out of 5 stars A pretty good dictionary 18 May 2000
By Madrassa tul Bayti - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I had originally gotten this book for my 8yr old but it was a little too advanced for her. The text is small, more like an adults dictionary as opposed to a child's dictionary. The definitions are not easy for younger children to read on their own. It is however very clear so she did understand the definitions after having them read to her. All in all it is a very good choice.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT DICTIONARY. 15 May 2007
By A. DIAZ - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
MY DAUGHTER IS SEVEN AND WAS REALLY EXICTED TO RECEIVE THIS. I DON'T ALLOW HER TO USE THE ADULT DICTIONARY BECAUSE OF SOME OF THE WORDS IN IT. SHE WILL FIND THOSE OUT WHEN SHE GROWS UP BUT THIS IS GREAT. THE DESCRIPTION OF IT IS WONDERFUL, SHE REALLY ENJOYS IT, AND LOOKS UP WORDS FOR FUN NOT JUST FOR SCHOOL. GLAD THAT I MADE THIS PURCHASE.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best elementary dic for foreign language speaking kids 1 Mar 2006
By W. Kern - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The dictionary has been intended for a nine years old girl who didn't has any English lessons till then. The book is easy to use, the explanations are simple and navigating through is arousing further interest. We think it is not only a dictionary but even more some first encyclopedia which feed the curiosity of the young ones as soon as they can read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reference Book for Kids! 11 Oct 2012
By A. Avins - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm very happy with this dictionary. My child is 8, in 2nd grade, and this reference book will be easy for her to use all through elementary school. The wording is bigger and easy for them to understand the explanations. Great pictures, and full of useful easy to understand information. I would have bought this for her in 1st grade if I knew it was out there. I have no doubt we'll be referencing this book for homework use into middle school.
I highly recommend this book, as I did previous research and happy with this selection.
