With its fresh new look, the Oxford Junior Thesaurus gives children starting KS2 the best writing support. It contains entries in alphabetical order, with thousands of imaginative synonyms with supporting example sentences. Many of them are age-appropriate citations from well-known children's authors, such as Dick King-Smith, Narinder Dhami, Jacqueline Wilson, and Roald Dahl. They show the words actually in use, and will inspire budding writers to use language more effectively and independently. Tinted panels provide more help for better writing with related words on various topics and alternatives for overused words. This is powered by the Oxford Children's Corpus, a unique electronic database of millions of words of writing for children. Extra material levelled to the curriculum for this age include tips for spelling success, punctuation, simple grammar, character and setting vocabulary, special features such as Top 10 Tips for Writing Stories, and help with letter-writing including text messages. Navigation is made easy with the guide words, and the full alphabet on every page with a coloured tab on the letter of the page. It is the ideal companion to the Oxford Junior Dictionary.
