4.0 out of 5 stars Good Starter Dictionary, 24 Jan. 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Oxford First Dictionary (Paperback)
Ideally I would like to give this book 3.5 stars but went for 4 as I think 3 stars is a little too less.

As I am writing this review, I realised that actually it should be my five year old who should write this as I bought it for them!

She likes some of the pictures that are in the book that go with certain words.

She likes the days and months at the end of the book. She has taken it to school with her to show her teachers.

From a parents perspective, this book (paper back) is nicely laid out. It is A4 size and has 120 odd pages. Obviously there are many words that did not make the dictionary but I think it covers many words that a 5 year old is likely to come across in their school day (Vulture and misunderstood are not in there). I could be harsh and say that some letters do not have as many examples as there should be for e.g. Z

Overall, I would recommend this book to other parents out there looking for a first time dictionary. They would need a more detailed dictionary a couple of years later but I think it gets them used to using a dictionary.
