6+ (Year 2, KS 1). This is a terrific thesaurus with colour pictures to help children write creatively and independently at home and in the classroom and best of all it is incredibly easy to use so children will be inspired to do so. There are over 20,000 synonyms and alternative words to extend vocabulary, example sentences to help choose the best word and top writing tips to develop the best language and writing skills. A unique feature that will inspire budding writers is the example sentences by well-known children's authors, such as Dick King-Smith, Narinda Dhami, Jacqueline Wilson and Roald Dahl. These show the words actually in use to hook users in to using language effectively themselves. Unique to Oxford, they are a real boost for children writing independently.
This new 2012 edition of the Oxford Junior Illustrated Thesaurus features thousands of synonyms with new illustrations and photographs in a contemporary and easy-to-use design. Entries are simple and clear, and include example sentences to show the words in context. It is powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a unique electronic database of millions of words of writing for children. Writing tips on choosing the right word, character and setting vocabulary, and alternatives to words like 'nice' and 'good', are given to support young writers. Getting around the thesaurus is easy with the alphabet on every page, and coloured tabs highlighting the letter of the page. The Top 10 Tips for Writing Stories at the back are excellent. It is the ideal companion to the Oxford Junior Illustrated Dictionary. What's more, you can go online for fun word activities for school and home on the www.oxforddictionaries.com/schools website.
