Collins Illustrated Junior Dictionary has been especially written to support the needs of children aged 6 to 8. It introduces key dictionary features such as showing parts of speech (noun, verb, adjective or adverb) and other forms of a word (for example plurals or past tense of a verb). The clear, spacious layout, colour headwords, guidewords at the top of each page plus the A--Z 'tab' index on each page ensure that the dictionary is easy-to-use. Bright, colourful illustrations and photographs support language learning AND make it fun. Full sentence definitions and example sentences show the headword used in a context familiar to children. The Collins Word Wizard section gives extra help with illustrated topic pages, support for writing and using the Internet as well as really useful word lists and games to play. Written by established children's dictionary author, Evelyn Goldsmith.
