The Lovereading4Kids comment
5+ (Year 1, KS 1). The Oxford First Dictionary is the authoritative dictionary for children in their first years at school. This edition has a fresh design, bright artwork and up-to-date entries and will help build language skills in an enjoyable way. Your child might even become a word explorer with special sections on phonics, spelling and grammar for reading and writing success. It has, as with all of the Oxford reference range been written and edited by teaching experts.
