4.0 out of 5 stars
Very useful, 28 April 2010
I bought this book together with the companian thesaurus for my 6 year old grandaughter who although she reads English well, is half Greek and lives in Greece. It is really useful because the explanations of the words are so simply and clearly written that she was able to understand the meanings without any problems. My only criticism if I had to make one is that some words I would have expected to be in the dictionary weren't but then they have to draw the line somewhere.
Overall an excellent book and very user friendly. Good lay out, type face and illustrations.
