The Hippocrene Children's Illustrated Czech Dictionary is filled with great pictures of everyday items. A child or adult wishing to learn the language through naming items and learning verbs will find it easy to do with this dictionary. The pictures are cleverly illustrated, and the Czech word is given in the English and Czech languages accompanied by the English phonetic pronunciation of the Czech words. This is not a true dual dictionary, however. We wanted to give it as a gift to a Czech child to learn English. No phonetic pronunciation was given for the English words, and the English phonetic pronunciation for the Czech was confusing to the Czechs. It definitely is made for the English-speaking person trying to learn Czech; then it is delightful.
