My First Dictionary by Collins Dictionaries


My First Dictionary by Collins Dictionaries

Collins My First Dictionary is the ideal introduction to alphabetic dictionaries for children aged 5 to 7. The definitions use simple, full sentences that reflect the child's experience of the world, and the attractive contemporary artwork helps to make learning easy and fun. My First Dictionary offers help to children in learning the alphabet, English spelling, and new words. With the alphabet at the edge of every page, and each letter a different colour, it is easy for children to learn how to recognise different letters, look words up and find out how to spell them. The artwork, which makes the dictionary look fun and appealing, makes it easier for children to understand what words mean, whilst example sentences show how the words can be used. The simple grammatical labels provided introduce children to different types of English words. Simple, fun and easy-to-use, this is the perfect dictionary for any child starting school.
