The Lovereading4Kids comment

7+(Year 3, KS 2). The Oxford Junior Dictionary contains over 6,000 entries in alphabetical order, in a clear and accessible design. Each entry shows example sentences (from well known authors), easy to read numbered meanings and word classes. Tinted panels throughout the text focus the mind on overused words, words belonging to the same family as well as key language topics including connectives and apostrophes.

Synopsis

Features literacy requirements for KS2 YR3 and YR4, and P4-P7 for Scotland. This work contains subject vocabulary plus special word origins section at the back.

Reviews

‘[The Oxford younger dictionaries] make use of a handy letter string running around the margin of each page which highlights the letter in question. This careful emphasis on the alphabet (a fragile skill in the 5-plus age group at whom this dictionary is aimed) is very helpful’. Independent

‘An attractive and practical tool for any child, and excellent value for money.’ The Teacher
