I had seen these dictionaries in our school library, so I knew that some more advanced words might not be found in this dictionary. I bought it anyway, because this dictionary offers so much more. It includes jokes, synonyms/antonyms, facts, and idioms that engage kids. My daughter reads this dictionary for the jokes, etc, as often as she uses it to look up spellings/meanings of words.
So, in short, if you are just looking for a dictionary that has words for kids to look up for homework, etc, the M-W Elementary Dictionary (or the Scholastic Children's Dictionary, which we also have) might be better suited for that purpose. But if you are looking for a fun dictionary that will engage young children and allow them to explore words/language, I can't imagine that there's a better dictionary available than this one.
