The Lovereading4Kids comment
6+ (Year 2, KS 1). New 2012 edition. This is a terrific thesaurus with colour pictures to help children write creatively and independently at home and in the classroom and best of all it is incredibly easy to use so children will be inspired to do so. There are over 20,000 synonyms and alternative words to extend vocabulary, example sentences to help choose the best word and top writing tips to develop the best language and writing skills. A unique feature that will inspire budding writers is the example sentences by well-known children's authors, such as Dick King-Smith, Narinda Dhami, Jacqueline Wilson and Roald Dahl. These show the words actually in use to hook users in to using language effectively themselves. Unique to Oxford, they are a real boost for children writing independently.
This major new edition has new contemporary 3D artwork, and a modern, accessible look and feel. Specially written by children's word experts, it will support young creative writers at school and at home.
