5.0 out of 5 stars Ideal thesaurus 8 year old 2 April 2013
By jeane
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I spent a lot of time choosing this book for my grandson's 8th birthday am very pleased with my choice. It is laid out well and easy to use. My grandson is delighted with it and says it is better than the one he uses at school. I think it should last into secondary school. I definately recommend this thesaurus for an 8 year old.

5.0 out of 5 stars An encouragement for my grandson. 20 Nov 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Recently my grandson(8yrs) has started to have more homework and the questions keep coming as he tries to expand his word knowledge,rather than attempting to answer him which only goes to show my limited vocabulary we decided to get into the habit of sorting it out for himself,hence the perfect gift to move him on in life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oxford Primary Thesaurus 3 Oct 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this along with the Oxford Primary Dictionary for my 8 year old daughter. She has found it easy to use and aswell as giving you synonyms of a word it also has an example of the word in a sentence. Throughout the thesaurus there are 3 special help panels- 'overused words' offering more interesting alternatives for common words. 'writing tips' helping to create more colourful descriptions and 'word webs' giving a list of words related to a topic word, which my daughter has found really useful.
