I love this dictionary and am sorry to see that it isn't so readily available as it was a few years ago.
Over the past decade I've used it with all my KS2 classes (Y4 to Y6 for me) and have found the layout, the additional information about word types etc. both appealing and sensible. Although it's recommended for age 10+ I would have no qualms in purchasing it for children aged 7+ who are confident readers. At the start of this school year only a handful of my Y4 class were independent dictionary users whereas now they are all keen and proficient users.
