Synopsis

The Facts on File Student's Thesaurus by Marc McCutcheon

The Facts On File Student's Thesaurus, Third Edition includes listings for more than 9,000 of the most commonly used words in the English language. Arranged in an easy-to-use A-to-Z format, this invaluable thesaurus includes words carefully selected for junior and senior high school students, making it far more accessible than references designed for adults. Each entry includes identifications of the part of speech, a carefully selected list of synonyms, a list of antonyms where applicable, and a sample sentence. This new edition features a wider selection of advanced words, science and technological words, as well as words on topics that have become more popular since the last update, such as computers and the Internet. New entries include abate, aboriginal, closure, efficacy, intuitive, misanthrope, preponderance, rapacious, raspy, sophistry, trenchant, viscous, vitriol, and more. With thousands of new entries and updates to existing entries, The Facts On File Student's Thesaurus, Third Edition is the perfect resource for junior and high school students looking for a concise, easy-to-use thesaurus.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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.

Katie Lonsdale

Love “Lovereading4kids” as my son gets to hear about & read new books before his mates which keeps him interested in reading=a very happy Mum

Liz Evans

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

Sarah Murray – age 15

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

Adam Graham

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