Using the Oxford Concise School Dictionary on the top part of the page and the corresponding Oxford Concise School Thesaurus entries on the bottom, this combined Oxford School Dictionary & Thesaurus provides a one-stop shop for upper primary/lower secondary school users. We see it as the perfect 2in1 purchase by parents for their child.

Synopsis

Oxford School Dictionary & Thesaurus by Oxford Dictionaries

The Oxford School Dictionary & Thesaurus combines a comprehensive dictionary at the top of the page with a companion thesaurus at the bottom, for the upper primary student moving into secondary school. The dictionary contains clear simple definitions, up-to-date example sentences, and support on spelling, grammar and punctuation. The thesaurus provides thousands of up-to-date synonyms, arranged by the meaning that is closest to that of the headword, instead of alphabetically, to enable users to select the most accurate alternative. Having the dictionary and thesaurus entry on the same page makes it a very easy-to-use one-volume reference tool. It is powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a unique electronic database of millions of words of writing for children. Plus, for free downloadable word games, puzzles, and activities, go online to the www.oxforddictionaries.com/schools website.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
