Synopsis

Oxford First Thesaurus by Andrew Delahunty

The all new Oxford First Thesaurus, with new contemporary 3D artwork and easy-to-use page design, is the best thesaurus for children in their early school years.

There is a full index of all the words that are included in the book at the back. It is the ideal companion to the Oxford First Dictionary.
