This children's thesaurus is well up to the publisher's high standards. It would be easy to throw in a random collection of words, but here they seem to me to have been thoughtfully selected and will serve the interests of quite young children to those in their early teens. Illustrations are apt and the concentrating of words together to pick up on key areas such as feelings, travel and food give the book an additional dimension. There are few gifts that we can give to the young more valuable than words. This book does the job admirably.
