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. It is powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a unique electronic database of millions of words of writing for children. The colourful, simple layout gives entries in alphabetical order along with hundreds of carefully-levelled synonyms for each entry and engaging full colour illustrations. To make navigation as easy as ABC, we have included the full alphabet on every page with coloured tabs, the letter of the page is highlighted. 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.
