First Picture Dictionary by Collins Dictionaries


First Picture Dictionary by Collins Dictionaries

Collins First Picture Dictionary is a colourful dictionary that teaches very young children simple word and picture association. It contains a selection of common everyday words, grouped in familiar themes. Each word is accompanied by a bold, colourful illustration, and many spreads also feature an action-packed scene incorporating the words. * A special feature of the dictionary are the questions posed by the cat, the dog and the family of children who appear throughout the book. These questions help parents and teachers to share the book with their children, encouraging them to look closely at the words and pictures, and talk about what they see * The dictionary opens with an introduction for adults, explaining how to get the most out of the book, and ends with a range of fun spreads that explore simple concepts such as colour, numbers and 'doing' words * Simple illustrations support every word to help children read and learn * For ages 2+


This brilliant dictionary...has been specifically designed to provide all the support children need to become independent dictionary users... a really worthwhile addition to the bookshelf. Early Years Educator

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
