The Complete Dictionary and Thesaurus by Martin Manser
The Dictionary is designed to inspire children to extend their use and understanding of language. It introduces more complex vocabulary as well as simple grammatical explanations. Presented in a logical, colour-coded format, the Dictionary provides children with a perfect introduction to reference books. The Thesaurus encourages children to experiment with different ways of expressing themselves by presenting each word with an array of synonyms. In addition, a grammatical explanation of each headword introduces the idea that language has a structure.
