Collins My First Thesaurus by Collins Dictionaries

Collins My First Thesaurus will help expand your child's vocabulary and improve their story writing skills. Simply written and presented, it lets them explore the possibilities of words for themselves. The key words are chosen from those children use most often. For each a variety of synonyms, from the simple to the adventurous, is given in order to build up your child's confidence with words. At every turn of the page, bright illustrations and examples appear. They are tiny stories in themselves that will engage the reader and spark their imagination. Why have a 'nice' gran when you can have a 'lovely' one? Why write about her 'loud' snores when they can be 'thundering'? It doesn't matter if it's a fairy tale or a fight with robotic monsters that is being written: this book will help bring it to life.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

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.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
