5.0 out of 5 stars Great For Kids! 11 Aug 2004
My parents brought me this wonderful Oxford dictionary when i was just seven years old as they thought that it would help me a lot with my spelling and general understanding of the English language, which is so hard to understand even now! However with this supurb reference for kids between the ages of about seven to nine although of course it can be used before or after this age bracket if nessesary.
This revised version of the Oxford Junior Dictionary is all set out as simply as possible so that young children will be able to understand it easily and not feel too daunted. Each word is in bold font and printed in red so you can easily tell the words from the description. Next to each word in a smaller font is the part of speech, either noun, verb, adjective, adverb, pronoun, or preposition. Again next to that there are written any other forms that the word may come in, mainly plurrals. Underneath these three things there is much simplified definition of what the above word in red means. Also included with the definition is an example of who the word could be used in a sentence, a phrase, and any derived words. All this is explained simply in the front of the dictionary so that children can find out for themselves the layout of the book.
At the age that this dictionary is designed for, many children have not yet learned their alphabet fully or if they have then may find it hard to work out in their heads. For this reason there is a list along the top of every page with the whole alphabet and if for example you turn to the G's then the G on the top of those pages will be highlighted in red so that children can easily see where they are in the alphabet and decide whether they need to go forward or backwards to find the word that they are looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a dictionary with 'really good words'! 8 Dec 2000
By A Customer
I wanted this dictionary because it has very good words like agitation and metamorphosis and I like it a lot because it is very useful for school work. My mum is going to get it for me as it is the same as the one I use in my school library and it goes with the Oxford Junior Thesaurus. The print is very clear and it gives you a little bit of information underneath the word. I dictated this and mum typed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ideal homework companion 3 Jan 2010
We got this for our 8yr. old daughter to help her with the more simpler words she would use in her homework.
She can now look up the word she wants to use, check the spelling and check its meaning, ideal value for money.Oxford Junior Dictionary (2007 edition)

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not bad but very limited - kids grew out of it too quickly. I should have stuck to an adult dictionary.

2.0 out of 5 stars Laid out well but too basic 20 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Beautifully simple in layout but too many words missing. Kids 7 yrs plus will find it just doesn't contain enough more advanced words for it to be much use. The next level - Oxford Primary Dictionary (2007 edition) is much better, twice as thick but still easy to use.
