The Lovereading4Kids comment

8+ (Year 4, KS 2). A fresh new look for the bestselling Oxford Primary Dictionary with example sentences from the best children's books such as Harry Potter and extra reading and writing support. This is unique to Oxford, and the sentences take children beyond looking up a word for spelling or meaning - and into thinking about reading and writing independently. It’s the perfect companion to the bestselling Oxford Primary Thesaurus.

Synopsis
